Help! First Time pregnancy/Mom at 36...whats with This Rash and My Feet?

Can anyone give me advise on the type of cream or what it is that I can do about this lovely rash that has developed under both of my breasts?

Hand Foot Mouth Tips

UPDATE: We're all finally doing better. I think the trick is to be patient, give a lot of TLC, soft foods, and luke warm beverages.

He has sores and blisters all over his throat, mouth, lips, face, ears, legs, feet, hands...

Acid Mantle (Cream Mixed with Hydrocortisone) - Is It Safe?

I have a 15 month old son who has extremely sensitive skin and had horrible ezcema (sp?) since he was an infant. We found out that it was mostly caused by an allergy to pet dander so we had to give up our pug. Well, we have been using a prescription cream on him called A-Mantle since he was about 6 months old that our Pediatric Allergist prescribed (who is associated with CHOP). This cream is a hydrocortisone mixed with some other type of cream. We use it on him practically every single day (since he still has ezcema). I specifically...
