In brief: Not recommended

Ear infections are inflammatory processes so flying and changing pressure in flight will most likely cause a great deal of pain.
It can also cause the inflammation to worse, possibly cause the ear drum to rupture or cause further local damage. If you have questions definitely see a specialist.

In brief: Yes but wouldn't

You can fly with an ear infection but there is a significant chance that you will have severe ear pain or rupture of the ear drum on descent.
