We are flying on Tuesday for a 2 week holiday to tenerife, but my DD has come down with a heavy cold sad it started on Sunday but she is still very choked and has a cough. Will it be safe for her to travel on Tuesday as I read it can be painful and dangerous for her ears or should I see a GP for a medical opinion. Or am I being a bit OTT and will probably be fine in another 6 days??

dose her up with as much medicine as you can (calpol etc) and hopefully she will be better.
Make sure she drinks on take off and landing and maybe get her ears checked out if possible before you go

get yourself straight to the pharmacy and see what they suggest. Treat the cold and cough as much as you can and hopefully she will be ok to fly. If you really dose her up hopefully the cold will go, or at least clear up a bit and so hopefully her ears will be ok

hope your DD gets better soon and you have a great holiday. Don't forget to ensure she swallows on take off and landing (particularly landing) so make sure she has a drink or sweets to hand.
