The best thing to do would be to take the kitten to a vet. Sometimes, the vet is the cheaper and more humane way to go than to make the kitten suffer. In the meantime, clean out the kitten's ears with a soft tissue and some olive oil, or cooking oil. This makes the kitten more comfortable before you can get it to a vet. It will not kill ear mites.

With no disrespect the answer to your question is called a Veterinarian.

My cat had a dark brown build up in his ears. I gently used a swab to remove the build up ...the first few times will be very uncomfortable for your cat. I found that the dark brown build up was mites/yeast. Id put few drops of hydrogen peroxide in each ear to kill the yeast. Oh!! After swabbing cats ears, give each ear a good rub ...itll feel really good for them.
