Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Necrotizing fasciitis:
Group A Streptococcal (GAS) Disease General: DBMD (Excerpt)
Early signs and symptoms of necrotizing fasciitis;
- Severe pain and swelling
- Redness at the wound site
(Source: excerpt from Group A Streptococcal (GAS) Disease General: DBMD
Group A Streptococcal Infections, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID (Excerpt)
The infection rarely starts with a sore throat. It more often
begins at a site of minor, or sometimes no apparent, trauma. The
affected skin is very painful, red, hot and swollen. Skin color may
progress to violet and blisters may form, with subsequent necrosis
(death) of subcutaneous tissues. Patients with necrotizing fasciitis
typically have a fever and appear very ill. More severe cases
progress within hours, and the death rate is high. (Source: excerpt from Group A Streptococcal Infections, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)
