After dealing with a severe and chronic ear infection here with a foster, which resulted in a ruptured ear drum, I can tell you that the Zymox doesn't work miracles on all ears.
I'd go back to the vet if I were you and get medicine from them, after they've examined the dogs ear.
You don't want to mess around since the ear drum can rupture and anything you put in the ear if it's ruptured can cause permanent hearing loss if it makes it's way down into the inner ear.
You cannot see a ruptured ear drum but it would account for the way your dog went nuts when you put in the cleaner.

I would definitely go back to the vet and at least let them run something on the ear discharge to see exactly what it, and what meds he should be on. My girl has to be on an oral AND something I squirt in her ear for hers to clear up all the way. And make sure to get rechecked when your done with the meds. I made that mistake with Lilly since she wasn't itching, and she still had yeast, and it was almost full blown again within 2 weeks of being off the meds.
