Well I tie first larh over ears (not covered) then a larh on top. I don't even mind the pain, I don't even notice it at times (if the lesson I'm in is fun). But the pain does come back at time and I get my baaj (silai) (metal pencil) out to push the larh further away. The thing is my ears look messed. Theres like really big black bits on my ears. I only tie a keski over my ears when I'm at home. I don't think I can uncover my ears in school. It looks wierd, feels loose and I have giant black scabs on my ears. Is there anyway I can get rid of the black marks?

All my paghs are mal mal or soft cotton like material.

You need to make an appointment with your doctor concerning the black scabs so he can examine them. They are either caused by the redness/swelling/itching/scratching etc slowly irritating and blackening/spoiling the surface layer of your skin or they can be caused by little black skin growths. Mention the medicines I mentioned earlier to your doctor. If it is the first reason, the GP might also give you a skin emmolient you use instead of soap such as Dermol 500. If it is the second reason the GP might use liquid nitrogen to burn those black growths. They can be a common problem on asian skin. Just see your doctor soon. In your case it is probably a combination of the two. The appearance of these black scabs, plus prolonged skin irritation which has made the nerves of your skin surface inflammed. You will be surprised how fast this problem will be sorted once you start showing it to your GP.

And I speak as a doctor. I wouldn't prescribe medication in this case, particularly painkillers. They are not indicated. It's like walking around with a nail in your foot and complaining about the pain - it's better to remove the nail and let the body heal itself. Think about how much of the drug is needed to penetrate to a small area whilst the other organs have to deal with the rest of the drug.

If you are a doctor you should kknow that declofenac sodium is not just a painkiller but an anti inflammatory. If you read my post very much more sharply you would realise that I have indicated that the description provided so far does indeed indicate soreness, redness as well as some swelling accentuated everytime the ears come into contact and get covered, and for that I dont see why taking an anti inflammatory with the additional benefit of numbing and soothing the pain should be so feared especially if it is meant for a very short term basis. Also I do not think it is right to rubbish other's opinions by declaring that you are a doctor because doctors can make mistakes like anyone else. You may be a doctor but others may have also shown the description provided so far to skin consultants within the medical fraternity to ensure and verify correct advice was being given. If indeed you are a doctor maybe you could offer this singh with an ear problem to come to your clinic for a free private consultation where you could examine his ears more thoroughly and decide what is best. At the end of the day it is his ears not mine and neither yours and he has been given a range of advices and it is for him to decide that according to the condition of his ears which is the best way forward. We are all only here, not to nit prick one another and use this as a sheild to improve our debating skills, but rather to offer our humble individual advice from our nijee point of view. My mother was not a doctor but her simple pieces of advice have always helped to keep my skin shiny, healthy and radiant, and on the other hand my best friend nearly died of being misdiagnosed for the wrong disease and Gurujee gave me the insight to warn me that this doctor was blatantly wrong and made me present the symtoms to another doctor who then quickly changed the medicine and saved my friend's life. So, being a doctor does not mean you are perfect in your understanding, and I would rather you show more humility in your response. Only God and Guru can be perfect, no one else, and its always wise to play down your credentials in public. Shree Guru Nanak Dev Jee Maharaj never had to declare to others that He was a Guru.

1. Stating my profession was only to highlight the reasoning behind my background. As I have learnt through Sikhi, only Naam is the only drug which has no side-effects. Hence medication should be used with caution. Consequently, I felt it was my duty to point this issue out. I don't normally go around identifying my profession unless there's a particular need to do so. Quite happy being anonymous 99.9% of the time.

2. Giving medical advice if you have no medical background can be detrimental and I have seen patients die needlessly because they sought advice from other people rather than go see a doctor.

3. I have never heard of any skin condition which benefitted from oral NSAIDs (other than maybe panniculitis) - I would be grateful if you point out which particular conditions it benefits. I ask this as oral NSAIDs are more likely to cause skin problems than anything else. Topical steroids and topical NSAIDs on the other hand do benefit the skin.

4. I suspect OP may be suffering from chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis. Whilst I agree that he needs to be seen to be diagnosed, if correct then again NSAIDs are not the answer.

5. If he did need oral NSAIDs, why not start off with ibuprofen? Less nephrotoxic, fewer side-effects and if it responded, it would provide some benefit.

I think your problem is not so much about your medical advise but the manner in which you came into the discussion slashing away at others in what can be perceived/give an impression as being harsh and rough. No one gets paid to give advice on here to others and we are all here to talk to each other in the humblest way possible. Anyone who comes to this site is taking precious time out to read what someone is saying and sincerely doing their best, all of us in our little ways to the best of our abilities to be loving, kind, caring and helpful. It is just not what you say that is important but how you say it especially in a Sikhi context. If not, no matter whether we are lawyers, architects, engineers, or doctors, we will be carrying forward the same disease of always fighting with one another that has plagued the past generations. Being gentle and soft, and appreciative are very important hall marks of a Sikh's character.

You do not really need to state your profession to highlight the reasoning behind your background,in this particular case, just as Guru Nanak Dev Jee Maharaj never had to mention that He was Jagat Guru in order to highlight the reasoning behind His Divine Vichars. I keep stressing that neither me, nor anyone else is recommending bhai sahib to resort to long term usage of AIs or PKs but rather to make changes to how his beautiful keshkee and dastaar are tied. Hence I am baffled that you felt you needed to stamp your feet down to declare that you are a doctor because you somehow felt that this bhai sahib was being given some sort of dangerous medical advice! No one was, or is, encouraging him to go and buy over the counter products from a pharmacy, but rather, to actually call or even see his GP who would assess any suggestions from either you, me or anyone else about the prognosis and proscribe accordingly. You are assured that the nature of your response would have been enough to help anyone suss out your profession. Alternatively, as I suggested, out of your brotherly love, you could offer to give him an examination at your clinic too, since now he has mentioned further problems to do with his ears too, such as the black scabs in his further posts down the thread, especially if you both live in the UK. That would help you determine the exact problem and help him out.

On the other hand, of course, on this website, we promote and encourage a Sikhi and Naam based lifestyle to anyone and everyone, instead of one based on being trigger happy on the long term dependency on any kind of drug as far as it is possible, according to one's medical condition. This is a very delicate and sensitive subject because as Gurbani declares ''so kath janae pirh parai, ja ke antar derdh na paeee''.

You are wrong in saying Naam has no side effects haha! Naam (and doing plenty of naam simran) as a powerful drug DOES have a lot of side effects! haha. They include feeling very very very very high, and very very very very verrrrrrrrrrrrry full of ecstasy and anand and blis, and feeling verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry chardikela! and getting vrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry close to Gurujee and the mind, body and spirit feeling verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry empowered and enlightened. The side effects are so powerful that as Bhagat Kabir says his family declared him to be ''bigheerea'' and as Gurbani says''koee kheh betala'' hehe.

    • he was hardcore defender of Yogi Bhajan and claimed that the ladies who gave evidence against YB in court about his abuses  and later the lady who wrote the book were liars or trying to blackmail him . Pretty low behaviour . All the white 3HO core had amrit in 1970 under orders of YB to do with his visit to India to showcase his 'conversions'

    • Not a gang, but has relevance to this thread   https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-58585788 Swansea man jailed after CCTV operator witnessed rape Published 1 hour ago Share IMAGE SOURCE,SOUTH WALES POLICE image captionTurkey Al-Turkey was told he would likely be deported after serving his prison sentence A man has been jailed for more than eight years after a CCTV operator saw him raping a woman. Turkey Al-Turkey, 26, of Cwm Level Road in Brynhyfryd, Swansea, attacked the woman outside the city's Civic Centre on 18 July. Swansea Crown Court heard the victim had no recollection of the incident and a date rape drug may have been used. Al-Turkey, an asylum seeker from Iraq, was sentenced to eight years and eight months after pleading guilty to rape. The court heard Al-Turkey had been drinking limoncello and vodka with his victim on Swansea's promenade on the night of the attack. The CCTV operator said he had seen the victim was intoxicated and unable to stand by herself, before he saw the attack take place as she lay motionless. He used the council's loading bay public address system to shout: "Get off her. She's drunk. I'm calling the police." Officers arrived at 01:40 BST and were not able to rouse the victim. Al-Turkey told officers she was asleep. image captionAl-Turkey was sentenced at Swansea Crown Court At the police station, she told officers she had no recollection of the events, but was told what the CCTV operator had witnessed after that interview. Carina Hughes, prosecuting, told the court drugs had not been found in the victim's urine, but some substances, such as Gamma Hydroxybutyrate (GHB) are eliminated from the body more quickly, and their presence could not be excluded. "Due to to her level of unconsciousness on CCTV, the prosecution felt it went over and above what we expected and anticipated from intoxication," she said.   An alcohol sample measured 62mg of alcohol per 100ml of the victim's blood. Rape 'killed the carefree version of myself' A victim impact statement from the woman, who cannot be identified, was read out in court. It said: "What's happened to me cannot be erased and will remain with me for the rest of my life. "He has killed the spontaneous, joyful, carefree version of myself and only time will tell whether these traits return in full. "The only positive element all of this is that he has been caught and is now going to be dealt with so that he cannot hurt anyone else." Another statement, from the CCTV operator, said he was struggling and kept replaying events in his mind. Ms Hughes said it was "extremely rare" for attacks like this to be captured on CCTV or witnessed. Judge Paul Thomas told Al-Turkey he had "serious misgivings" about whether the victim's condition was due to alcohol alone. "She made it perfectly clear to you that she did not want a sexual relationship that evening but you plied her with drink so she became less and less able to stand or even to move unaided" he said. "You took full advantage of the situation, putting your own sexual needs before any consideration of the impact upon her." Al-Turkey was sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison and will be on the sex offenders' register for the rest of his life. Due to his early guilty plea he will be eligible for release after six years. The court was told Al-Turkey presented himself to the asylum unit in Croydon on the 19 November 2018 when he claimed to have just arrived in the United Kingdom. Mr Thomas added: "Importantly I fully expect that you will be deported from this country immediately upon your release." Related Topics
    • Anyone with any thoughts on what this means ? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-58582573 Aukus: China denounces US-UK-Australia pact as irresponsible Published 1 hour ago Share media captionWatch: Australia’s ‘risky bet’ to side with US over China China has criticised a historic security pact between the US, UK and Australia, describing it as "extremely irresponsible" and "narrow minded". The deal will see the US and UK give Australia the technology to build nuclear-powered submarines for the first time. It is being widely viewed as an effort to counter China's influence in the contested South China Sea. The region has been a flashpoint for years and tensions there remain high. Chinese Foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said the alliance risked "severely damaging regional peace... and intensifying the arms race". He criticised what he called "the obsolete cold war... mentality" and warned the three countries were "hurting their own interests". Chinese state media carried similar editorials denouncing the pact, and one in the Global Times newspaper said Australia had now "turned itself into an adversary of China". ANALYSIS: Why this pact signals a major shift EXPLAINED: Tensions in the South China Sea The US is sharing its submarine technology for the first time in 50 years, having previously only shared it with the UK. It means Australia will now be able to build nuclear-powered submarines that are faster and harder to detect than conventionally powered fleets. They can stay submerged for months and shoot missiles longer distances - although Australia says it has no intention of putting nuclear weapons on them. The new partnership, under the name Aukus, was announced in a joint virtual press conference between US President Joe Biden, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning. And while China was not mentioned directly, the three leaders referred repeatedly to regional security concerns which they said had "grown significantly". "This is an historic opportunity for the three nations, with like-minded allies and partners, to protect shared values and promote security and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region," a joint statement read. The Aukus alliance is probably the most significant security arrangement between the three nations since World War Two, analysts say. It means Australia will become just the seventh nation in the world to operate nuclear-powered submarines. While they are the big-ticket item in the deal, cyber capabilities and other undersea technologies will also be shared. "This really shows that all three nations are drawing a line in the sand to start and counter [China's] aggressive moves," said Guy Boekenstein from the Asia Society Australia. Boris Johnson later said the pact would "preserve security and stability around the world" and generate "hundreds of high-skilled jobs". UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace told the BBC that China was "embarking on one of the biggest military spends in history... Our partners in those regions want to be able to stand their own ground." media captionWhy is everyone fighting over the South China Sea? In recent years, Beijing has been accused of raising tensions in disputed territories such as the South China Sea. It has been increasingly assertive over what it says are centuries-old rights to the contested region, and has been rapidly building up its military presence to back up those claims. The US has bolstered its military presence too, and has been investing heavily in other partnerships in the region such as with Japan and South Korea. Having the submarines stationed in Australia is critical to US influence in the region, analysts say. Tensions between China and Australia China is Australia's biggest trading partner, and in the past, the two have maintained good relations. But in recent years, political tensions have created a deep rift, stoked by Australia criticising China's treatment of ethnic Uighurs, banning some technology from telecom giant Huawei and supporting an investigation into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic. Western nations have also been wary of China's booming infrastructure investment on Pacific islands, and have criticised its heavy trade sanctions against countries like Australia - last year it slapped Australian wine with taxes of up to 200%. 'A stab in the back' But France has also reacted angrily to the new pact, because it means Australia will now abandon a $50bn (€31bn; £27bn) deal with it to build 12 submarines. "It's really a stab in the back," France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told France Info radio. "We had established a relationship of trust with Australia, this trust has been betrayed." The European Union's foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell said he understood why France was disappointed by the deal, adding that the EU was not consulted about the new alliance. "This forces us once again... to reflect on the need to make the issue of European strategic autonomy a priority. This shows that we must survive on our own," he said on Thursday.
