Flakes in ear

My friend's ear usually accumulates small size flakes inside his ear, which are usually white in colour. This happens very frequently. Is this a serious problem?

That is dandruff.... Which will also reflect in your scalp. Use a good antidandruff shampoo twice a week for 3 months. Rinse your ears with lukewarm vinegar solution subsequently to remove all the flakes. Avoid junk food.
