OK well I'm no doctor but I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to be hearing stuff move around in my ear when I move it... Is that a good indication that if I don't get ear medicine than I could get an ear infection?

You are not supposed to hear fluid moving around in your ear. If you can go to the doctor then that would be the best thing, but if it becomes infected an starts to hurt and you don't have antibiotics then what I've done in the past for swimmers ear was to take a Q-tip, dip it in hydrogen peroxide 3% solution, and gently put it in my ear and swabbed the sides close to the ear drum. Hydrogen peroxide doesn't burn like alcohol does so that's why I use it, plus in microbiology class it seemed to kill microbes a lot better than alcohol too. You can only kill microbes that are in the outer ear that way though, if it's behind the tympanic membrane then a doctor would have to put in a tube or give systemic antibiotics I would think.0
