"Flesh-eating Bacteria" is a description of Necrotizing Fasciitis. This is caused when bacteria get into the subcutaneous fat tissue, spread, and cause destruction of the blood supply of the skin. Sometimes the process is fast and other times slow. The disease always needs surgery to cut away the infected tissue. The bacteria causing this are usually normally in the body, but not contagious.
