Might help if you posted your picture so we can see the extent of the damage and therefore give you better advice on how to deal with it.

This one doesn't look to difficult. You should be able to clean it up with the clone tool, and the heal tool. The hardest part will be the face, but with the full size image you should be able to do a better job than I did here. The rest are pretty simple surfaces.

Dave has pretty much explained what to do. I noticed a focus problem and ran the picture through a thrid party plugin called Focus Magic and then completed my retouching efforts. Focus Magic did seem to improve the picture.

cute pic, but i dont know... we're not supposed to allow nudes. ok, just kidding. the guys have the right of this one. clone, some focusing. i'd try a usm. and then maybe a little color correction. the reds are a bit strong, probably due to low light when taken.

Re: I need help with my photo.....

Made a very quick attempt to repair the tears.

I haven't tried to deal with any of the other issues with this picture.

All I've done is clone out the cracks. Obviously with more time all the other "defects" in the picture could be addressed.
