Knot under chin. Recovering from staph infection. Will it cause scarring?

I am recovering from a staph infection just under my chin being a woman I am very concerned about the knott that is there although it is goin down I am worried that it will either leave a scar or a hard knott later! Do staph infections leave hard knotts under the skin as a result of scaring? If so can I be treated? Thanks Teri
