need advice

alright so a while back my cat had ear mites, the solution the vet gave us to use worked great (it seemed like it was just saline) and currently my cat has been scratching his ears again. i dont have the bottle from the vet (its at school) and went out and bought "mite-x ear mite remedy" it has aloe and lanolin active ingredients pyethrins and piperonul butoxide. i used it last night and noticed that his ears seemed greasy after words (im guessin from the aloe). all day today he's been miserable. i called the vet to see what i can do an am still waiting on a call back. i tried applying a cool rag but he hates wate.
any suggestions?
im thinkin just try a plain water rinse real well?

I'm sorry, I don't have any suggestions other than bringing him back to the vet. But I wanted to say that I would stay away from anything containing pyrethrins for cats as it can be toxic. It's best to stay away from over the counter tick, flea or mite medication for cats as they can be dangerous.
