I've been having some issues with my ears (eustachian tube dysfunction) for the last few months. Every time I stick my pinky finger in my ear (don't worry, I'm not being forceful or shoving it in there too deep haha) it comes out with a waxy goo-like substance. I'm sure it's just earwax but it kind of seems a little too liquid-y to definitely be earwax. It's a clear/faintly orange color. What concerns me is that putting my finger in my ear doesn't clear out the waxy substance; it's like it keeps coming back. Every few minutes I see if there is anymore and there is. Could this be considered discharge? Every time I've been to the doctor I've said there is no discharge because nothing is dripping out of my ear, but this just seems a bit abnormal. Could I just be overanalyzing and it's just a rapid production of earwax? I'm slowly, slowly getting over some sinus issues and I guess I never really checked to see if this has been happening the last few months. It's likely that this is just my body reacting to the allergen-induced sinus infection. I just wanted to hear from someone else. Thanks! PS- I know this isn't directly tinnitus related, but I do still have tinnitus. It was virtually gone for the last couple of weeks but it still makes its comebacks recently.
