    “Flesh-eating bacteria” is a term used to describe certain types of bacteria that can cause severe infections in the body, resulting in the destruction of tissue, including muscle and skin. These bacteria are typically members of the genus Streptococcus or the species Clostridium perfringens. They are capable of producing toxins that break down proteins and tissues, leading to rapid tissue destruction. These infections, known as necrotizing soft tissue infections, are rare but can be life-threatening if not treated promptly with antibiotics and surgical intervention.
