Sounds definitely like a clogged duct, maybe mastitis. i've always dealt with it naturally, but some people take antibiotics. Here's what's helped me in the past:

- hot compresses on breasts
- LOTS of nursing/pumping
- massage the breast under a hot shower
- lots of fluids
- phytolacca and belladonna (homeopathic remedies)
- cabbage leaves on the affected breast(s)
- vit C and echinacea to ward off infection

The last is the most important. Take care.
