In brief: No

Bcg toxicity is generally not associated with staph infections but rather toxicity from the BCG itself.
This is form of tuberculosis which may cause tuberculosis type symptoms which is direct result of absorption of the BCG itself.

In brief: Injection Site Rx

The integumentary system helps protect the body from damage and includes the skin, hair and nails.
Bcg skin side effects may include easy bruising and redness at the injection site. Infections at the injection site are possible but unlikely and could include staph.
