Toddler with rash

A friends 2yr old living in poor conditions started with a rash of some kind. A week ago It looked like it was on his feet and legs only. This week he has a few scaly like patches on body and arms (It''s being treated, so hard to make out what it is). He also has blisters on his bottom. Can you tell me by this description what this is and if it is anyway related?

Hallo Surina
it is difficult to guess what it could be, but it may be a staphilococ infection, in which case he may need antibiotic ointment. The blisters could be related to the rash.
