WOMAN NEARLY DIED AFTER INFECTED ECZEMA WOUND LED TO DEADLY FLESH-EATING BUG THAT ATE A HOLE IN HER ARM

A woman was left fighting for her life after an eczema wound became infected and caused a deadly flesh-eating bug to ravish a hole in her arm. Last year, Molly Farrelly, 25, from Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, contracted necrotising fasciitis, a rare condition that causes bacteria to release toxins, causing skin to die. It can quickly become life-threatening, leading to sepsis and sometimes organ failure. Thankfully, after six operations, Molly survived, but a year on, she has no feeling in her arm. Molly, who now has a 15-inch scar on her arm, wants to urge others to listen to their body.
