In brief: See your doctor

It is important to get evaluated by your OB and a breast or general surgeon.
If there is an abscess associated with the mastitis, it will need to be drained. You will also need antibiotics. Unfortunately, it is a painful process but pumping your milk will help to keep the ducts open.
