My son's rash

Just thought I'd update on my son's rash. What was once molluscum contagiosum (sounds like something from Harry Potter), has changed. Three of the original bumps under his arm merged and started to look very aggravated. The rash that had been healing started to reappear. It seems two things happened pretty much simultaneously. First is that he developed a sensitivity to the medication that we were putting on the rash (hives). The second is that the 3 bumps that merged got infected. As soon as we got home, I took him to the doctor and found out that he had a staph infection. UGH. Fortunately, not a resistant type, but still. So now he's on antibiotics 4xs a day and a cream for the area itself.
