There are several strains of strepoccocus that can cause NF. Beginning stages of NF involve fibrotic inflammation of the fascia. At that point, you must go to the doctor and get treatment, otherwise, the NF will cause necrosis (cell death) to the area affected. At that point, damage is permanent, and you have to face an amputation of a limb before NF leads to a terminal stage, which can lead to death. Thank you for visiting Medicine Men.
