13 year old has OCD/intrusive thoughts, have you tried medicine? ERP?

My 13 year old daughter has OCD and I've been afraid to try psychiatric medicine. Tried homeopathy which helped for a while, but then didn't. Got her into counseling, finally and we've gone back twice but it's not a person who does ERP, which I've learned is the best.

Seeking advice on what works. Got so bad this weekend I gave her Benadryl which has helped the past 2 nights. I'm reading some say it could stop in about 10 days and make it worse.

Can't get into a psych until late May but I will keep trying to find another one. She hates the idea of going to see someone, anyone, about the OCD. Seeing her suffer is behind excruciating. Please help.

Thank you for any feedback you can provide.
