@Koelsch: Nahh, I'll probably go to a GP, more convenient.
@M.Eddy: How much was it? and do you really just go there, and tell the GP "Hi, I think my ears are very dirty, can help me clean?"

Err. You can say that or you just tell them your ears are blocked and need some treatment. Surely treatment sounds nicer than cleaning

Err I paid 25 per ear. If you had hard wax before you used audiclean then you might wanna get your ears checked out as audiclean does not clean out the hard wax properly.

I don't know how to check. I only knew when the audiologist told me after failing to get my impressions done because of it.

If you are staying at the west, you can try Dr WK Koo and Associates in Jurong Point.

I did it once about 1 1/2 years ago. You need to apply ear drops for 1 week before the actual cleaning. Besides digging out the wax, they also pump a solution into your ear to clean out all the debris.

The feeling is sensational, to say the least. You can feel that your ear is totally clean.

I do not know the costs involved, as it is charge to my company at that time.

Ok guys I have experienced ear wax removal.

First, I went down to private clinic at serangoon central (general practitioner). Consultation is $30. Tell the doc you have a blocked ear. Doc will check and tell prescribe some ear medication (actually like olive oil). For my case, the doc also gave me antibiotics and medication, because he found my other ear canal was a little swollen. Total $70.

Put for a week no use. Went to company clinic, raffles medical centre at hitachi tower (raffles place, happen to work there). Told doc same thing, the doc used the syringe and flush the wax out. I told doc still getting humming sound and still has the blocked feeling. Doc asked if I have running nose or flu, which I have. Doc suspected that fluid may be blocking on the other side of my ear drum and gave me some medicine to consume for 5 days. Paid $12 because company deduct $50.
