  • It is possible that it could be swimmers ear. It doesn't present with the same symptoms as a regular ear infection.

  • My first thought was that there was some water in there, too. But for wax or water, you can try dropping some hydrogen peroxide in there and letting it sit a minute. Usually the water and/or wax will run right out.

  • It could be yeast.
