A treatment that works for lots of moms is heat, as hot as you can stand, on the plug. AFter heating it, massage, ro hand express from behind the plug all the way down to the nipple, essentially trying to express the plug. sometimes the milk can look yellowish or thickend and stringy, which is safe for the baby if a little yucky. For heat I liked to use a rice sock--a cup of rice in a sock, knot the top, and microwave it until hot. I had a big one, and a little one made from less rice in a toddler sock which I could tuck into my bra. Also trying to position the baby so his nose in facing the plug increases the suction over that duct. That's in my books, can't say I was always able to try it. required some nursing gymnastics at times.
I hope your issue resolves, I think with my son they got much better aroudn 4-5 months, and I'm really glad I didn't give up, though some nights with mastitis were miserable.
