How do I unclog a stopped up milk gland?

I have a stopped up milk gland. I have tried hot compresses, hot and cold compresses, drink hot liquids and massage the area. None of it has helped. I'm still breastfeeding and my baby will not eat off that side. What should I do?

  • Have you pumped the affected side? That can help if baby won't nurse from it.
