(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)
