ot_higiene If you put your finger in your ear, you may come across a yellowish or brownish substance which is the earwax.This is formed from secretions of the sebaceous and ceruminous glands of the skin, along with hairs and dirt.

You must keep your ears clean and dry, but you must never use any cotton buds or other instruments for cleaning beyond the external ear.

Earwax acts as a protection, lubricating the skin and preventing infection. In a way, you could say that ears have their own system of cleaning and disinfection.
