In brief: Repeat That....

If the infection is severe enough and chronic, it could spread to the ear. In still developing ears, as in children, the fluid build up could cause enough pressure to cause the ear drum to rupture.
The inflammation has impeded the ability of the fluid to drain. It is important to begin treatment before it gets to the chronic stage.
