A lot of you guys will be aware of this (I Would not be surprised if Bushy or Contrl have once wrote a thesis on it!)
But this is new to me and I thought it was good info to share due to the nature of what we do (injecting ourselves regularly)
I was first made aware of Necrotizing fasciitis last year when a neighbour pricked his hand on a thorn in the garden and died from a resulting infection 7 days later.
I have just heard about a 30 yr old rugby local player that bruised his arm during the game (nothing major) but the bruise turned black and his arm became painful, on the Tuesday he went to the docs who rushed him to A&E who rushed him to theatre, where he died before they had chance to operate.
He died from the infection Necrotizing fasciitis, but the really scary thing here is that, his skin was not even broken.
I would just like to point out that this is very rare, but if you are injecting it’s good that you understand the early signs and symptoms and act fast just in case.
