It is possible you have mastitis. Nursing or pumping often is critical to open the plugged ducts(s) and allow healing.

try this link for treatment and/or do a search here on MDC for sore breasts, plugged ducts, or mastitis. Good luck!

Try Kelly's AP site plugged duct/mastitis resources for the most comprehensive discussion of this problem I've ever run across.
