I have had a plugged duct now on the left side for a week and a half. It hurts. Its not getting better. Nothing helps really. It hasn't turned worse though. Could it be something else? It had plenty of these when my LO was around 7 months. About one a week, they lasted maybe 48 hours. I used to try doing something about it like massage, heat, etc. trying to get LO to nurse a lot, etc but it didn't work then and doesn't now. My LO doesn't nurse much anymore (23 months) so she doesn't nurse long enough to make the plug come out. I do not own a pump.
Any suggestions on what to do- maybe wait longer? I stopped wearing a bra around home to see if that helps. Is this something else? Any ideas?
