Flesh Eating Bacteria

If you have been watching or reading the news lately, you likely have heard about the flesh eating bacteria (necrotizing fasciitis) that is causing illnesses and deaths. This bacteria is known to cause death in 1/3 of those infected. Those at risk currently have open wounds, cuts or injuries that have broken the skin. If you or your child have open wounds, the CDC advises to stay clear of lakes, rivers, oceans, swimming pools, and other large bodies of water.
