unwise

Here is my best explanation:

'rash' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'heard you spilled wine over skinhead' is the wordplay.
'heard' shows a homophone (sound like).
'spilled' indicates an anagram.
'over' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'skinhead' becomes 's' (head letter of 'skin').
'you' is a homophone of 'u'.
'wine' is an anagram of 'nwie'.
'nwie' enclosing 's' is 'nwise'.
'u'+'nwise'='UNWISE'

'with' acts as a link.
