Flesh Eating Bacteria Exists in Abilene WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES

Houston’s Fox-4 just reported that the deadly flesh eating bacteria has been discovered in Galveston. 50 year old Brian Parrott had spent Sunday at the beach swimming and chilling with his family.

By Thursday, Brian was having his leg amputated. Apparently Mr. Parrott had a scratch on his leg and being that he is diabetic, that may have accelerated the bacteria.

Last year a Dallas woman lost an eye to the nasty bacteria. A few years ago a 24 year old Georgia college student made headlines when she contracted the deadly flesh eating bacteria.

I began to research to see if the ‘flesh eating disease’ could possibly be in our local lakes and ponds around Abilene. The answer will shock you.

Dr. Yamini Kalla, with Abilene Infectious Disease says “the bacteria is just about everywhere. But it’s mostly found around water. like rivers, creeks, lakes, ponds, tanks, dirty pools and mud.”

“Don’t try and treat it yourself. Get professional help from an infectious disease doctor, if you are a diabetic, have had dialysis, been on chronic steroids, liver problems or chemotherapy stay away from unclean sources of water, especially if you have an open sore. It’s more common in people with diabetes, who often go to a lake for swimming and maybe develop a minor scrape or cut on a foot and think nothing of it, only to get it infected with the flesh eating bacteria”.

What really surprised me was that Dr. Kalla treats approximately one to two patients every year for the very flesh eating bacteria called ‘Necrotizing Fasciitis‘ right here in Abilene.
While the flesh eating bacteria eats mainly at the flesh it can also devour muscle tissue, organs and cause major health problems even death, if left untreated.
