I am sorry for your child and his infection.
often times when children are fighting off infections, whether viral or bacterial, they can develop a rash on the skin.
rash on the skin often can be a skin manifestation of internal inflammation.
what is most important is his wound healing up and if his staph infection getting better.
if he continues to have this wound or this staph infection, these could be enough to be causing internal inflammation which can cause skin rash.
