Flesh eating disease, will I get it? How do I treat this area?

For reasons irrelevant, I have many scabs on my back and near my neck. I noticed one of these scabs tore off twenty minutes ago, likely from rubbing against my clothes, and it is now bleeding. I tried treating the area with an antibiotic ointment, as I always do when this happens (which is daily). Should I fear necrotizing fasciitis? I feel it necessary to note that I've been taking an antibiotic called Minocycline for about three weeks now.
