Recurring ear infection

I am getting a recurring abcess in my left ear.I went to an ENT but he couldn't diagnose the problem correctly.My GP told me its an abcess & gave me antibiotics to suppress it.I have had it 4 times In 1 year.It's somewhere just near the ear opening & is painful. No pus but ear dryness, swelling & some dry crust there.
