Is it a bad idea to fly with a perforated eardrum?

In brief: Should be ok

You are probably ok to fly.
See an otologist. You need a hearing test. Stay on dry ear precautions. Your perforation is perhaps a sign of eustachian tube dysfunction. Make sure your other ear is not at risk of this as well.
