Flesh eating “Zombie” drug spreads across the U.S.
Last month, krokodil, a highly addictive drug that eats through human skin, made its first known appearance in the United States.
Now, use of krokodil, which has been nicknamed the “Zombie drug,” has spread to the Midwest.
Given the ingredient list, it’s not surprising then that the drug has some gruesome, sometimes fatal, side effects.
Krokodil causes the skin to turn a scaly, reptilian green around the area where it is injected.
For now, officials know of only a few suspected cases. However, there’s reason to believe more may be on the way.
