Most people do not think that they have extremely sweaty ears. Unless someone is exercising, ears don’t tend to drip with sweat. You would be surprised to find out that ear sweat forms itself as ear wax.
Ear wax is not wax at all, it is technically known as cerumen. Ear wax is made up of dead skin cells, dirt, bacteria, but mainly sebum and sweat. Stress sweat may be a big player in the amount of ear wax you produce.
Studies show that chemicals and hormones are released when a person is under intense emotion or physical stimulation. When stressed, you can produce up to thirty times more sweat than normal. So, if you suffer from ear wax build up you should address your heavy sweating or high stress levels first, as the amount of ear wax one produces is directly linked to sweat production.
