Staphylococcus aureus

What is Staphylococcus aureus? 10 months ago I had rashes all over my face and scalp only. On consulting to local doctor, found high IGE level 930. After medication, the rashes were gone. But since three - four months now, I m again having itchy rashes on my body. On checking for IGE level again it was reduced to 330. Was browsing on the net and found Staphylococcus aureus could be the cause. I am having digestion problems too. Please help me find out the root cause for this.
