In brief: Infection

My main concern for you is infection of the skin or cellulitis and I believe you may need antibiotics for the skin.
Please revisit your medical provider or urgent care good luck

In brief: Suggestive of eczema

Your doctor prescribed the correct medication.

Please be careful of soaps and bubble baths, as this can aggravate eczema.. Be mindful of body lotions as well.
Please make sure that you dry under your breasts after bathing.
You can use cornflour (Maizena) under your breasts to keep them dry , especially during heat rash.
Also try to use non-alcoholic under-arm sprays
