Wow! We have very similar skin, but I am envious of your eyebrows. I also have translucent skin under my eyes, so people think I'm tired and it is just the veins.
My ears are usually itchy in the spring and fall with pollen activity. I cleaned them with cotton swabs on Monday, and then yesterday felt a big itch, reached my pinky finger in my right ear and found something hard and solid. It was a wax rock! Complete with dead skin cells and glistening wax! It was the size of a small corn kernel. I was both disgusted and impressed.
