If it is an infection, you would have a fever... So I would guess blocked duct. Nurse nurse nurse! Take a hot shower, BF treehugger, and massage the blockage while she is feeding. That's the best way to get rid of it. Hopefully someone else has some more ideas for you!! Good luck!

Watch it for the next day or two. I started out with a really sore spot but no fever, then the next day my temp was up to 103 and the sore spot was red, hot, and swollen. I had to do a 10 day course of antibiotics, and it took almost the full 10 days to stop hurting.

I'm no help, but hoping it is doing better this evening.
