Ears are hurting. Dr said no infection just a lot of fluid. Using nasonex (mometasone) and afrin. Can fluid in ears turn into infection? Seeing ENT this week.

In brief: Otitis media

Yes, fluid accumulating behind the ear drum can become infected, usually with the bacteria that are commonly found in your nose and the back of your throat.
Your ENT doctor will sort this out effectively. Good luck.
