The scientific name for wax is cerumen and it is produced by ceruminous glands in the outer portion of your ear canal. As pesky as it may be it serves a good purpose for your ear. It helps to trap debris that may come into the ear and when your body heats up the wax loosens and makes its way out of the ear. However, buildups can occur, especially with the use of q-tips, certain over the counter wax softeners,
ear plug use, and a few others.
