    This resource talks a bit about both plugged ducts as well as mastitis (and how to tell the difference and how to manage them)

    Hope it helps - keep us posted

    I've personally had really good experience hand expressing at the end of a hot shower while massaging the plugged duct.

    Nurse, nurse, nurse. That's the only thing that has helped me. My DD is the only one that can suck that plug duct out! I've tried pumping while massaging the sore spot and it wouldn't do the trick, then I plopped DD on my boob and she sucked it right out in like 5 seconds! Not kidding. And it was my right breast too!
