Hi Smith,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
With the perforated ear drum she can definitely fly, but not swimming.
Take care

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Perforated ear drum at such an early age usually heals with the help of antibiotics and some care or surgical closure is needed. But after the healing, there is nothing to worry. She can very well participate in all the normal activities like every other kid.
