My son had an open wound from a staph infection and it has a green tint to it. Is that a sign the infection is coming back?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Green tint

The green tint may be a sign that another type of bacteria called pseudomonas may be present.
I would recommend contacting your son's treating physician.
