Answer ( 1 )


    “Flesh-eating” bacteria, scientifically known as necrotizing fasciitis, can be found in various environments, including soil, water, and even on the skin or in the intestines of healthy individuals. However, they typically only cause infections when they enter the body through a break in the skin, such as a cut or wound. Necrotizing fasciitis bacteria are opportunistic pathogens, meaning they take advantage of weakened immune systems or compromised skin barriers to cause infections. Therefore, practicing good wound care and hygiene, as well as avoiding contact with contaminated water or soil, can help reduce the risk of infection.
