Hi,

Rash over the breasts may be a dermatitis, a fungal infection, or a miliaria (sweat rash).
Itchiness seems to be associated with the three differentials. A fungal infection may be likely here given the location and the associated symptoms. Dermatitis or eczema may present with excoriations and weeping (wet patches) as well as itchiness. Fungal infections show a more well defined border than dermatitis.

You may opt to stop using the cream and observe the rash. Keep the area clean and dry. Use only a mild and bland soap over the area. Use loose clothes of light material. If  you sweat a lot, see to it that you change into dry clothes each time. Modify your diet.Take in more fresh vegetables and fruits. Avoid direct exposure to heat. You may opt to observe the symptoms and see if it improves without medications. If preventive measures seem to aggravate the condition, then I suggest you seek consult with you dermatologist for further assessment.
