Where does Ear Wax Come From?

Ear wax is made from glands which are near the ear drum. The wax slowly makes its way through the outer ear canal to the opening of the ear. Ear wax protects the ear canal and helps protect the ear from bugs and bacteria. You can find more information here: http://kidshealth.org/kid/talk/yucky/earwax.html
