Is it safe for child with perforated eardrum to fly?

My daughter is five years old, almost 6 and we just found out that she has a perforated eardrum, was told that it was like a zit in the ear that just popped. She is currently taking antibotics both orally and ear drops, will she be fine to take a flight this coming Saturday?

Yes, it is completely safe to fly with a perforated eardrum.
Only people who have undergone any recent surgery for eardrum are recommended to consult their surgeon before flying.
