In brief: No remedy

You can take otc pain meds for a short time while waiting for a dental appointment, but there is nothing you can do to resolve your need for dental treatment.
I hope you have already called for an appoinment since things can only get worse, not better. Feel better soon...

In brief: No

Eventually you will get to the point that the home remedies dont work, you will ultimately feel "unpleasant", and consequently the post treatment course at the dentist will be equally unpleasant .
Get to the dentist as soon as you can,

In brief: Clove oil

For many years people have been using clove oil applied to a tooth to ease pain.
However this is only temporaya, and you should see a dentis as soon as possible.
