In brief: Skin and wax

You may have some eczema of the ear canal.
The ear canal is lined with the same lining as the rest of your body... Any skin condition that can affect your skin, can affect the lining to your ear. Try some moisturizing cream just inside the ear canal. Do not use q-tips... Apply with your finger tip.
