My daughter has an earache. No discharge from her ear. I do not have insurance. What is an effective home remedy?

My daughter has an earache. No discharge from her ear. I do not have insurance. What is an effective home remedy?

None: There really is no effective home remedy for an ear infection that is inside the ear (otitis media). Pull at the upper part of her ear, if it hurts when you pull it, perhaps it is a swimmers ear or external ear infection. If this is the case, white vinegar drops will help you out.
