The earwax is a body fluid which is a sticky substance that is able to say plenty of things about a person’s health. Scientists explain that the earwax itself is a combination of long-chain fatty acids, squalene, and alcohol.
Even though it’s really disgusting, the next time you clean your ears it’s very important to take a much closer look at your earwax.
1.Yellow, wet and sticky
This is the most ordinary type of wax for adults. The sticky and wet texture helps to keep the ear canal from drying out and becoming itchy.
In case you notice bloody wax you have to immediately get medical attention. Sometimes, the old earwax looks like dried blood, but in case there is blood, you might have a perforated eardrum.
3.Wet and runny
According to the doctors, it is completely normal if the earwax comes out of our ears now and then, as that is part of the natural cleaning process. Still, if the earwax in large amounts pours out of your ears and if it contains pus or blood, it is an important warning sign that you have a perforated eardrum and you have to immediately seek medical attention.
