Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I had twins 5 weeks ago and 2 times since have broken out in an ichy rash all over my body, but mostly on my arms & legs. Any idea what it is or how to get rid of it? I am breast feeding and have tried otc & perscription creams w/ no relief.

I would question some kind of allergic dermitsis. Allergies can surface at any time in someones life. I would think about everything that you are eating or if you switched products like detergent or soaps, sampoos. Also I would definitely see your doctor. They would be able to tell you what is safe to use when you are breast feeding as far as creams and medications are concerned.
