2. What Are the Signs and Symptoms of the Condition?

Warning signs of necrotizing fasciitis include swollen, red or warm areas of skin — these areas will expand quickly. The skin within these areas may also be sensitive to touch, even beyond the redness or swelling. Do not ignore these warning signs. Go to a doctor for a diagnosis.

Waiting can lead to more debilitating symptoms like fatigue, dizziness, nausea and diarrhea. You may also experience black spots on the skin along with blisters and ulcers. The skin around infected areas may change color, and pus may ooze from the contaminated site. The key to surviving necrotizing fasciitis is early treatment.
