I don't want to take her to the dr because last 2 times I took her they said they like to see if it goes away on its own before giving medication well last time and this time she is crying it hurts and holding her ear all though our dd is a drama queen makes things seem worse than they are. They said last time it was a little red but not enough to give meds for. So they sent her home. So I don't want to make another app. and pay for that they are just going to send her home. She is crying, but she makes a big deal out of everything so honestly I don't think she is in that much pain I believe her ear might burt, but I don't think it hurts as bad as she says. What can I give her for the pain to see if it goes away on its own?

well first if a doc does nothing for an ear infection its not a good doc even if they dont give antibiotics they do make ear drops that are for pain. my dd gets ear aches a lot because her ear canal is shaped odd and so the doc gave us drops to make them feel better while they heal them selves. also if its not an infection (IF IT IS AN INFECTION THIS WOULD HURT) peroxide in the ear would clean them up. our ds had to do that after bathing almost every time for a few years.
