In brief: Exam helpful

It is hard to tell from the info you've given if the 2 issues are related or not.
Sometimes people can get a viral infection like shingles that could affect both your ear and your eye. However, usually otitis externa (outer ear infection) usually resolves with drops e.g. sofradex + keeping the ear dry. When you say eye infection, do you mean the lids or is the eye itself red?

When you post on this site you need to follow a basic pattern.
You provide background information, as you did & ask a clear related question. Just sticking a question mark after a statement does not make it a question. We don't read minds. You are welcome to start over.
