Light Yellow Wet Earwax
What can cause changes in earwax? Mine was wet and orange. It is now dry and yellow. Also, facial and hand hair is less harsh and libido has decreased.
Ear wax in the ear canal is a mixture of secretions from oil and sweat glands in the canal's skin. Shedded skin cells are also a major ingredient of ear wax. There are two genetically determined types of ear wax: the wet type and the dry type. While Asians and Native Americans are more likely to have the dry type (crumbly, flaky), Africans and Europeans are more likely to have the ...Read more
I have noticed a dark red spot on my earwax yellow-marroon from right ear. Left earwax.has normal colour.
Red spot: The red spot with your ear wax may be blood from you trying to get out your wax. Generally you should avoid trying to use q tips or other things to get out the wax yourself. Let your doctor do it for you. The ear canal's skin is thin and easily irritated and you risk puncturing your ear drum if you stick items in your ear canal ...Read more

I have swimmer's ear and I have water in my ears and used a q-tip and yellow ear wax came out. Is that what's holding the water in?
Yes: Wax build up is the ear canal is very common. Some people suffer from it more than others. Water can get trapped between the ear drum and the wax. This increase the chance of infection especially the outer ear which we refer to as swimmer's ear or otitis externa. Infection can also sets in from impaction of the wax which is caused by q-tip usage. ...Read more
I was dropping Debrox into my ear to loosen ear wax and yellow liquid immediately came out of my nose. Is this normal?
It seems that the debrox solution is leaking from your external ear canal into your middle ear, at which point it is draining through your nose (see image). This suggests that you have a perforation of your ear drum, or your "tympanic membrane" and that's how the debrox is leaking through. I suggest you have a doctor take a look in your ear canal to confirm if here is a perforation. ...Read more
My inner ear feels wet and itchy inside. Earwax looks creamy. What type antibiotic cream is good for me ?
Not antibiotic: You may have a fungal infection in the ear canal and thus would not likely respond to abx. If there is no history of ear drum perforation, some OTC anti-fungal ear drops (usually containing acetic acid) may be helpful. If problem persists, see your doctor to get checked out. ...Read more

I have a wet white/yellow discharge with a foul smell. Is it STD related? Will it go away? What is it?
Get tested for STDs: I assume you're female per your profile, not male as suggested by username. You mention STD, so I assume you think you're at risk (new partner, no condom, etc). Your symptoms are suspicious for trichomonas (an STD). Bacterial vaginosis, sometimes but not always sexually acquired, also is possible. So are gonorrhea and chlamydia. You need to be professionally evaluated in person for STDs. ...Read more

Yellow clumpy vaginal discharge sometimes clear, no odor, no itch, negative for c&s test, wet mount and pap test. What else can cause yellow discharge?
Treat for best guess: Diagnosis of vaginal discharge can be difficult. Yellow color suggests infection. Depending on exact tests done, some infections can be missed, e.g. gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas. Talk to your doctor about being retested. If available, include the new DNA test for trich, much more accurate than wet mount. It may be necessary to treat for the best guess, without proof of diagnosis. Good luck! ...Read more

Can UTI cause yellow discharge? I've yellow vaginal discharge on daily basis. Went for c&s test, no pathogen seen. Negative for wet mount.
Probably not UTI: UTI doesn't cause vaginal discharge. Probably you were tested for STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia) and negative wet mount suggests you were checked for vaginal infections bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas, and yeast. But that test misses almost half of trichomonas infections; ask doc about the newly available DNA test for trich, a far better test. Also ask about cervicitis and maybe retest for STDs. ...Read more
