What have you done for plugged ducts (BFing)

I have tried hot baths, heating pad, rolling a ball to massage. I am onto cabbage leaves and will head out tomorrow for the sage tea I have read about.
They are pretty tough and I keep getting them while trying to wind down and wean.
Any other remedies? Thx.
