Sphynx ear redness?

I haven’t noticed Sid scratching his ears more than normal, but I’ve noticed a couple of red patches inside his ears. They don’t look too sore and they’re probably just from scratching (he’s due an early clean and bath today) but I just wondered if anyone has seen anything like this before?
My friend who also owns sphynx’s thinks it might be some sort of sweat rash or something.
I’ll attach some photos
Thanks!

They do look rather pink. How often do you clean them and what do you use?

It’s the red patches that I was concerned about, but they’ve literally popped up out of nowhere.
I clean them whenever they’re dirty really, anywhere between every few days and once a week and I use use a damp cotton swab and make sure they’re dry after!

My girlie had ear issues and after I started using TrizULTRA in/on her ears it completely went away. @Yoda mom loves the stuff too. You might give it a look. Worth a try.
