- blocked ears
- hearing difficulty
- ringing in the ears
- ear canal that feels full or clogged
- itchiness in the ear canal
- ear pain

Do you remove foreign objects from children’s ears?
Yes. We’ve had many cases where children put objects in their ears while playing or exploring. It is always important to book an emergency appointment with us in these cases so we can remove the object on the same day if possible. This is due to the risk of developing an ear infection from the foreign body.
What happens if you cannot complete the procedure in one session?
So far, we have completed 100% of paediatric patients’ ear wax removal in one session. This is partly because we allocate 45 mins – 1hr to these sessions to ensure your child is settled, and partly because we go at their pace. However, if we cannot complete the procedure, we would offer a free follow-up appointment within two weeks of the initial appointment date.
How do I remove ear wax from a child’s ear?
We strongly advise against using home remedies to remove your child’s ear wax at home due to the risk of perforating the eardrum or unintentionally causing injury to your child’s ear.
Is ear syringing good for children?
Over the years, research has revealed that ear syringing is not the best practice for ear wax removal. We use alternative safe techniques such as e-microsuction to remove your child’s ear wax.
Can you check if my child has glue ear?
Yes, we can to perform a tympanogram on the day of the appointment to check if your child has glue ear or not. This comes at an additional cost.
