Default Ear infection?

my chi keeps scratching her ear. ive noticed this for about a week or more. its not on the outside, but she scratches really hard on the inside then licks her foot. she does it for a few minutes. could this mean she has an ear infection? or could it be just a really bad itch? she does this often to the same ear.

Tofu does that sometime too. sometime he scratch the outside of the ear and sometime inside then sniff it and lick. but it doesn't smell or look any different at all. i just think that they get the itch too just like us. if she do it all the time then maybe you should take her to her doc.
