Question: Necrotizing fasciitis? Could you get Necrotizing fasciitis from having sex with someone who has Streptococcus or a recent infection from a cut?

Answer: Yes, if the other person's wound makes contact or gets very close to even a small cut on your body or a place where the skin is very thin - like your sexual organs. Usually it will spread the infection and stay moderate, but if your immune system has been compromised lately it could easily become that severe.
