How common is it for user to die from skin popping? My brother was an addict for 30 years and was on methodone. He was on maintenance and stopped due to cost. He then proceeded to use street shit and developed an infection. He went to ER and was given antibiotics. Taken back next afternoon, diagnosed with FLESH EATING DISEASE and died on operating table. He was goneown 24 hours.
His wife died possibly of same thing 6 days later.
Was it stuff a bad supply? If needle shared, can her infection actually be delayed 6 days? My family have so many questions.
