    Good morning ma, Sorry about that. Health is wealth, so, I will advice you take your health very serious ma. The culture result that showed Candida and Staph really calls for concern. But staphylococcus aureus most time if found during a culture of the vagina is regarded as "normal" because the organism is believed to be part of the normal habitant of your vagina. So don't bother yourself about Staph. Regarding Candida, if you are still having a pap like discharge, with or without itching, I will advice you see a gynaecologist for proper treatment. If I also got you right, you said a rash is all over your body, I don't think this rash is related to the test. I will advice you see a dermatologist to determine the cause of the rash and if it's contagious. I wouldn't say for now if your children can get it from you because I don't know the nature of the rash. Please see a dermatologist as soon as possible. Have a nice day
