Flu-Like Symptoms

It's possible to mistake early symptoms of necrotizing fasciitis for the flu. As the body tries to fight the infection, a person may develop muscle aches. They may also have chills, fatigue and fever.

A fever is an early symptom of many infections and illnesses. A high temperature after an injury or surgery doesn't automatically mean a person has necrotizing fasciitis, but a doctor can help identify potential infection before more serious symptoms develop.1‘Necrotising Fasciitis.’ Nhs.uk, 19 Oct. 2017, www.nhs.uk/conditions/necrotising-fasciitis/
