It sounds more like mastitis. I would call your doctor since you do have blood. If feeding is too painful definately continue to pump and empty the breast often. Here is a good site describing the difference between masitis and a clogged duct.

I highly recommend lecithin.   Check kellymom.com for Boyfriend or Best Friend question, that site was best best.  My LC recommended it.

if it is a clogged milk duct and not mastis, i would also recommend you try a heat pad on the breast.  it took me about a day to get it worked out. and I alternated between heat pad, some massage, baby, and what did it finally was my manual pump.  oh the relief once the “knot” worked out.

@eurekaanchovies: OMG I did not know that your milk duct could get clogged. I hope you figure the situation out soon. I wish you the best. The ladies on the bee know sooo much.
