The Middle of my Helix on my Ear Separated During the Trauma of Removing a Keloid. How Do I Heal It?

Didnt know if i would have to get it sutured or if it would heal back with the unhealed skin underneath it.

There are many questions that would need to be answered by you in addition to having a picture of your ear to give you specific advice, but the simple answer would be that you should be seen by a facial plastic or plastic surgeon to have your ear evaluated.  If there is a laceration on the ear, it should be sutured.
