I also took really warm showers and massaged. Heating pad at night helped as well. It went away after five days finally. It was so painful! Good luck and I hope that it clears up for you!
I second the football hold position! It worked a charm with my second. With my first, I pumped most of the time and still got clogged ducts ughhhhh (so much for pumps draining fully... nothing drains your boobs out better than a baby!).
