Is earwax really wax?


Answer by  mammakat (11147)

It's not wax like candle wax. It's a secretion that protects your ears by trapping dust, etc. However, ear candling done by a professional can help with excessive wax.

No, it's not any sort of wax like bee's wax or candle wax, it just happens to have a wax-like consistency. It's cholesterol, dead skin, and dirt.
