Of course, and there's no reason not to treat it. There are even over the counter remedies available. Yeast infections can lead to much more serious conditions. Your body would deal with it eventually unless your immune system is suppressed as it would deal with any infection.

How can sinus infections affect hearing?

Your sinuses and your ear canals are connected. If you have a bad sinus infection and is not treated properly, you can easily get an ear infection. It also could just plug up your ear canals (by plug up i generally mean that the ear canal may become inflamed and therefore smaller), and it could make it somewhat harder to hear. But mostly it would be the ear infection that would be most likely.
