Head Cold -Cancel Trip?

Jump to last reply

I posted this on the Italy forum, then it occurred to me, that this might be a better place for my question.

I woke up with a head cold.

I am scheduled to fly out tomorrow noon to go to Venice & the Veneto for 15 days. I have 2 layovers enroute. My question is, should I cancel this flight/trip? (I'll lose the Visa "points") I have trip insurance for the rentals and various tickets I've paid for in advance, so that would be reimbursed.

I've taken Mucinex and Sudafed today in preparation, but still feel really plugged up. I've also lost most of my sense of taste (Great timing). Not much in the way of symptoms other than sinus pressure & headache and post nasal drainage. Pretty congested feeling.

I had sensed the cold coming on earlier in the week, and took all the usual herbs and supplements to nip it in the bud, but it didn't work.

I'll use Earplanes ear plugs, but I am concerned about damaging my ears. I once had my eardrums bleed during a flight and it is not something I care to repeat. At that time, I hadn't taken any measures, and Earplanes hadn't been invented.

This is my first time traveling solo, having been widowed recently. I'm taking the trip "we" were going to take.

I'm just looking for input from more experienced travelers, with this sinus situation.
Thanks
