Put some medicated ointment on it, Zambuk is good (sold at Boots), then apply double bandaid/elasterplast to cushion the wound while to heals.

Follow Bundha's advice. Use an antiseptic ointment to prevent infection, and i would suggest to put a ball of cotton to cushion the ear while it heals.

Also, to prevent this from happening again, use softer keski material if possible.

You should take two tissues and fold them (one for each ear). Then put one side of the tissue behind your ear and the other covering the top of your ear. Then Tie your keski over them and you shouldn't have any more cuts.

Could it be anything to do with the material of the keski? (it's maal maal)

Try to use full voile. I tried using mal mal but my dumalla got too small and it was loose.

I got chemical full voile and it helped a lot. You just need to fold it (once or twice) very evenly and bring it over your ear. If you have it evenly done it will not hurt at all. Do not make it excessively tight from the ears. Once you bring the lards over your ears then you can make the dastaar/keski tighter .

I am not sure about dumalla materials but for normal mal mal turban , I would get ear burns if i dry them in open/sun. Now I wear turban all machine washed and dried (more smoother). Also, never wear turban twice. Wear once and send it to wash (hard to implement but try it).

Also follow what sunsingh mentioned in his reply.

Every person has different size/shape of ears... so to some it suits and to some it doesn't..

you could also wrap the first few layers under your ear, and the rest over.

This works 100%

    • Whose authority do SWAT need? 
    •   The Power of Prayer Dr. Mark, a well-known cancer specialist, was once on his way to an important conference in another city where he was going to be granted an award in the field of medical research. He was very excited to attend the conference and was desperate to reach as soon as possible. He had worked long and hard on his research and felt his efforts deserved the award he was about to obtain. However, two hours after the plane took off, the plane made an emergency landing at the nearest airport due to some technical snag. Afraid, that he wouldn’t make it in time for the conference, Dr. Mark immediately went to the reception and found that the next flight to the destination was after ten hours. The receptionist suggested him, to rent a car and drive himself down to the conference city which was only four hours away. Having no other choice, he agreed to the idea despite his hatred for driving long distances. Dr. Mark rented a car and started his journey. However, soon after he left, the weather suddenly changed and a heavy storm began. The pouring rain made it very difficult for him to see and he missed a turn he was supposed to take. After two hours of driving, he was convinced he was lost. Driving in the heavy rain on a deserted road, feeling hungry and tired, he frantically began to look for any sign of civilization. After some time, he finally came across a small tattered house. Desperate, he got out of the car and knocked on the door. A beautiful lady opened the door. He explained the matter and asked her if he could use her telephone. However, the lady told him that she doesn’t have a phone or any electronic gadget but told the doctor to come inside and wait till the weather improved. Hungry, wet and exhausted, the doctor accepted her kind offer and walked in. The lady gave him hot tea and something to eat. The lady told him that he can join her for prayer. But, Dr. Mark smiled and said that he believed in hard work only and told her to continue with her prayers. Sitting on the table and sipping the tea, the doctor watched the woman in the dim light of candles as she prayed next to what appeared to be a small baby crib. Every time she finished a prayer, she would start another one. Feeling that the woman might be in need of help, the doctor seized the opportunity to speak as soon as she finished her prayers. The doctor asked her what exactly she wanted from the God and enquired if she thought God will ever listen to her prayers. He further asked about the small child in the crib for whom she was apparently praying. The lady gave a sad smile and said that the child in the crib is her son who is suffering from a rare type of cancer and there is only one doctor Mark who can cure him but she doesn’t have money to afford his fee and moreover Dr Mark lives in another far off town. She said that God has not answered her prayer so far, but said that God will create some way out one day, and added that she will not allow her fears to overcome her faith. Stunned and speechless, Dr Mark was in tears which were rolling down his cheeks. He whispered, God is great and recollected the sequence of events. ….there was malfunction in the plane, a thunderstorm hit, and he lost his way; and all of this happened because God did not just answer her prayer but also gave him a chance to come out of materialistic world and give some time to the poor helpless people who have nothing but rich prayers.
    •                                                              FOCUS ON PERSONAL OBJECTIVES   A youth went to the church father and said “father, I won't be going to church anymore.”
      The Fr. responded “But why?”
      The youth said “Ah! I saw a sister speaking bad of another sister; a brother that can't read well; the worship team living wrong; people looking at their phone during service;among so many other things wrong in the church.”
      The Fr. replied “OK. But before you go, do me a favor: take a full glass of water and walk three times around the church without spilling a drop on the floor. Afterwards, leave the church if you desire.”
      The youth thought : too easy!
      And he walked three times around as the Fr had asked. When he finished he told the pastor he was ready.
      And the Fr. asked “When you were walking around the church, did you see a sister speaking bad about another sister?”
      The youth replied “no.”
      “did you see anyone looking at their phone?”
      “No”
      “You know why?”
      “No”
      “You were focused on the glass, to make sure you didn't tip it and spill any water. It's the same with our life. When our mind is focused on our own objectives, we don't have time to get distracted by others` actions/karam .”
