Feral cat in laundry causes horrible under-boob rash: how do I get rid of this?

So our friendly neighborhood feral cat has been climbing in through a window and hanging out in our house when it rains. Last week I found him sleeping in a laundry basket and chased him out of the house, then put on a bra from that same basket.
That evening I found fifteen! bug bites under my boobs. And boy did they itch. So I scratched them, and eventually the bites went away. In their place? A horrifically itchy under-boob rash that is driving me out of my f-ing mind.
At first I applied baby powder a few times a day, and it seemed to be getting better, until I wore the same bra (it having been washed) and the rash got way worse. This may or may not be related to the initial insect bite-apolooza. Now baby powder makes it worse. So does cortisone cream.
WTF happened to my chest, and I how do I get rid of this? The rash has been going on for about five days. Any suggestions on immediate relief? This is torture. (Benzocaine ain't doing it for me.) I'm working a long shift tomorrow and can't be pawing at my chest all day.
