My Yorkie's ear skin is turning black

I have a 4.5lb yorkie female that is 4 years old. As the cold weather has set in here in NYC the color of the skin on her ears has turned black. They feel so cold. She doesn't have any sign of infection like a smell or slime. She has not lost any hair on her ears.

She has always had some skin issues with itching and yeast and lots of vets have suggested lots of things but I know she has very sensitive skin. She is washed weekly with a medicated shampoo given by the vet but she has never had anything like her skin turning black. Vets have never been able to really solver her skin issues. The color of her ear skin changed makes me more worried. Does anyone know anything about this?
