my aunt has an ear infection and was wondering if she takes Clindamycin that she has left over if that will make the infection go away.

You never want to use left over antibiotics. Antibiotics need to be taken in a certain course. If you dont take them long enough you can cause the bacteria from the infection to become antibiotic resistant. Many ear infections are viral in nature and antibiotics are not helpful. She should really see her heathcare provider.
