I am nursing my 13 mo old, about 6 full feedings a day, every 3 hours or so. Today the top half of one breast hurts, like an ache, and is warmer to the touch than the rest of my skin. I can't feel any lumps on palpation. Does this sound like a plugged duct? The only one I've had before was an obvious lump before the pain started and a much smaller area was hurting.
ps. Could it already be infected even tho symptoms only started today?
