Necrotizing faciitis is a devastating disease. It is a flesh-eating bacteria that can ravage your body. Necrotizing means dying or diseased tissue. Faciitis is an irritation or inflammation of the fascia, part of the layers of the skin.
This flesh-eating bacteria is a fast moving infection and the key to minimizing the damage is to recognize it and treat it aggressively.
In a recent case of a young woman who suffered a laceration on her leg after going on a zip line, she developed necrotizing faciitis that resulted in her being put into a medically induced coma. Unfortunately for this woman, the doctors were unable to save her hands or feet and they had to amputate both hands and both feet.
Patient diagnosed with necrotizing faciitis typically call with questions about whether the condition was timely and aggressively treated.
