Ear wax and ghusl

Salaam Alaykum.,

I tend to have a lot of ear wax in my ears, to the extent that even after cleaning out my ear of big pieces of ear wax, some earwax or substance (maybe dead skin, sorry to be gross lol) always comes out under my nails after cleaning my ear. My questions is does this wax or substance form a barrier for water during ghusl?

Also, I know one of Sistani's rulings are: 380. While doing Ghusl, if a part of the body, however small, remains unwashed the Ghusl is invalid. But, it is not obligatory to wash the inside of the ear or nose and other places which are reckoned to be the interior of the body.

But What counts as the inside of the ear? Is it only the hole where noise enters or is it the entire side of the ear which faces away from the head, and where ear wax can accumulate? 

Sorry if these two questions are a bit silly but I would be extremely grateful if someone could help me out. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) reward you.

Inside of the ear refers to the hole from which you hear

Wa alaykum salam. As far as I recall, inside of the ear includes this.

You just need to wash auricle, not the inside ear hole
