Flesh Eating Bacteria

 

Necrotizing Fasciitis or Flesh Eating Bacteria is described by the CDC as a bacterial infection of the tissue under the skin that surrounds muscles, nerves, fat and blood vessels.

 

The most common ways of getting necrotizing fasciitis is when bacteria enters the body through a break in the skin, like:  cuts and scrapes, burns, insect bites, puncture wounds (including those due to IV drug use) or surgical wounds.

 

Symptoms may include; red or swollen area of skin that spreads quickly, severe pain, including pain beyond the area of the skin that is red or swollen or fever.

 

There are many types of bacteria that can also cause this infection. Fortunately, flesh eating bacteria is rare and a person’s chances of getting it is extremely low if they have a strong immune system and practice good hygiene and proper wound care.
