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.

The chance of getting narcotising fascilitis is minimal. try to keep the area that is bleeding covered to keep it clean and infection free..................
