The only other thing I'd do is go buy an aloe vera plant. Another suggestion, is to get all your bigger kids some children's viatimins, for the C and E- these antioxidants can help the skin repair itself more quickly. Cool baths, with little to no soap, so it doesn't dry out.
Yes, breastmilk will really help. Topically- lactic acid helps the skin shed without hurting, the oils form a barrier, and the milk is antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. Internally- breastmilk has the sugars and proteins needed for swift healing, and nursing reduces stress and sensations of pain.
And yes, breastmilk is anticarcenogenic. My favorite miracle story is, a boy I met at the WIC office was born with a inoperable/untreatable malignant tumor on his spine, that by 16 months, had disappeared on its own. The boy's mama was convinced it was because she nursed him all he wanted- she dropped everything, went on welfare, to nurse this baby 24-7 in the hospital for over a year. And the little boy? Shy, a little small for his age, doing fine.
Treat the blisters like any open sore- avoid anything that hurts, keep clean, etc.
Honestly, I think everything will be fine.
