Green and Black Rash on my Coworker's Neck

I work at Home Depot and my coworker has this disgusting rash on her face and neck. It is red on her face and neck but in the middle of her neck it is turning green and black and is positively disgusting. She was sent home the first day it was noticeable and was instructed to see a doctor. Now, she LIVES to come to work and makes us put up with a lot of stuff like her nose exploding with spinal fluid and blood so this is especially worrisome because it EXPLODES and if it's a bacterial infection in her bloodstream then we could get it. She SAYS it is probably not contagious ANYMORE (but was at one time?) but when me and other coworkers confronted our managers about a doctor's note they didn't have one. They just took her word for it. It looks like it's getting worse and more black and green, so gross that a lot of us have purchased our own disinfectant supplies to sanitize everything before touching things. Additionally, it seems like she is purposely doing things that could spread it, like sticking her hand in bags of chips, into our food and utensil boxes, and into the INSIDE of cups and things we all use. I have filed a report with HD but I don't know if anyone knows of anything else I can do to prevent it spreading if it is contagious or who else I can contact. I'm concerned for us, her coworkers, and for the 100's of customers she interacts with daily. Help!
