Brief Answer: Not related Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query Excess wax in the ear canal will not cause excess mucous in the throat. Wax by in itself will not stimulate any gland to produce mucous. The most likely reason for the mucous is your recurrent sinus infection. Sinuses tend to drain finally into your nose and throat. The ideal way to tackle this problem is to take expectorant syrups like Ambrolite S twice a day and also approach an ENT specialist for sinus surgery to clean up the sinuses and improve the drainage I also suggest the following 1. Keep yourself warm 2. Avoid cold food and beverages 3. Avoid dusty environment I hope I was of help to you, if you have any further queries please get back to me I wish you good health Regards
