Well, I don't know where you have been reading, but no, plugged ducts can happen anywhere along the duct, on the nipple or deep inside the breast. yours may be a plug near the surface, or just some kind of zit?
Treat it with moist heat. Take a shower, and use warm wet washcloths when you get out, I used to sit next to a crockpot full.
If it is a plug in a duct, massaging it towards the nipple will help to move the backed up milk along. do this when you nurse, if it seems neccessary.
