Flesh Eating STD Reported for the First Time in England

Donovanosis, which is spread through sexual intercourse with an infected patient, or by coming into contact with a patient’s infected ulcer, is typically seen in India, New Guinea, parts of the Caribbean, central Australia and southern Africa.

According to the CDC, the painless disease causes progressive ulcerative lesions on the genitals or perineum, which are prone to heavy bleeding. A pharmacist said that any delay in treatment “could cause the flesh around the genitals to literally rot away.”
