That sounds like mastitits. Get it under control. http://www.kellymom.com/ has a lot of info on it.
You want to avoid, in the future, engorgment as that is generally the main culprit in mastitis. That means if you have your baby on a schedule, stop and instead feed on demand. One breast a feeding and let the baby decide when finished and offer the other breast then. If the baby doesn't want it then begin with that breast the next feed. Lots of water, rest, and nutrition.
