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%

    • There was a similar case of a halal meat factory was going to be opened near a UK gurdwara and eventually legal action was taken and they couldn't open it near the premises. Same thing needs to happen here, not because Sikhs cant eat meat because they can. However the hygiene and bad smell from meat shops does effect the environment. A gurdwara should be a welcoming place for vegetarians and non vegetarians. If rotting meat smells is near the Gurdwara hardly anyone is likely to come to pray, so they can file a case against such a shop being opened next to them. Further more I have also noticed pakistani muslim shops mostly restaurants opening right next to UK gurdwara sahib's. Maybe its a direct policy by zealous muslims to try and undermine non-muslim places of worship or maybe there's nothing sinister about the motives however knowing islam's history with non-muslim communities i chose to believe its often to undermine the other communities.
    • By 0 proof, I meant 0 presented. Not that you had 0. And its not like people have never lied(unfortunately) in front of Guru Granth Sahib Ji, or done much worse.  What lol? My point is we can't just have this fantasy we'll somehow pick/find 5 Singh's who all be completely pure and fix everything. A lot needs to be done before that. 
    • I think American Sikhs need to create a central Sikh body of America's where national security is priority. resolutions can be passed and create protocols so that they can be enforced. So for example defending sangat and Guru Ji would be priority but also preventing such things as stopping the anti-sikh mixed faith anand karaj beadhi that canadian and american sikh gurdwara committee's allow still. Most UK gurdwara's have no started to stop this beadhi insult to their Guru, but they have yet to implement tough security for Guru's ghar as we can see they get robbed by non-sikhs and Guru Ji is attacked. There's a private Sikh security firms in America, one is run by "goray Sikhs" called akal security. Sikhs in the west need to create a security force like this for all gurdwara's and have Sikhs on guard duty on a well paid salary to prevent beadhi and kick out undesirables who cause trouble.  
    • We have a gurdwara here with a meat shop fairly close by, no such smell in or around gurdwara. Maybe your nose is just much more sensitive, but meat shops do not leave the entire neighborhood smelling.  
    • apart from being rude can you please finally answer the question WHAT ABOUT MAI BHAGO JI?  do you deny Dasmesh Pita ji gave her khande di pahul? do you also deny he tied a dastaar on her head? do you deny purataan sakian associated with her? Are you denying the itihaas that says there were female combatants on the battlefields , spies and messengers ? Do you deny the itihaas of women's heads being cut to pass off as sikh teens for a price? (thus they had to be wearing jodey on dasam duar at least) do you denounce the goodness and Honour of all the Bibian such as Harsharan Kaur ji, Mai Bhago ji, Mai Sevan ji, Mata Kaulan ji, The singhnian who were presented to Begums of mughal officials , who were described as being muscular, dressed like men , in armourplate , carrying arms ???
