Will my knife wound heal without treatment?

Seek treatment

Wounds
The human body when injured promptly sets upon the task of attempting to heal itself. If the injury itself does not compromise the functioning of a vital organ then when given enough time any injury involving the "soft tissues" of the body can heal. The caveat however is that if not treated appropriately underlying injuries can be missed , infectious and cosmetic complication can also arise.

What is the treatment for puncture wound of the ear?

Depends

Ringing_in_ears_
Most traumatic perforations of the tympanic membrane (ear drum) heal spontaneously. Keep water out of the ear. If there is a hearing loss, vertigo or otorrhea (drainage), you must consult an otologist (ear doctor) for a more specific diagnosis and treatment. You should let us know the preceding event that led to the puncture and how large it is before specific treatment can be considered.
