Call your doctor: The best course of action is to call your doctor immediately and let him know about the rash. Tylenol (acetaminophen) can cause severe skin reactions and in addition since your son was in surgery he should be evaluated right away for any infectious causes of a skin rash as well.
I would advise taking him in immediately.
