The injectable drug created disreputable across Russia for its alarming flesh-eating properties couldhave recently shown up on America’s east coast for the primary time.

An overdose patient found just about rotting alive in Manchester, New Hampshire last week told responders he believed he’d been injecting the drug krokodil.

‘With someone who is literally rotting away in front of you,’ Chris Hickey with American Medical Response told WCVB. ‘It turns the stomach of even the most seasoned provider.’

First on East Coast? An overdose patient found all but rotting alive in Manchester, New Hampshire last week told responders he believed he’d been injecting the drug krokodil. Pictured is a wound on the leg of Amber Neitzel, 26, from the drug in Lockport, Illinois in 2013

Previous in the U.S., reports of krokodil had cropped up mostly in the Southwest.

The cheap and highly addictive opiate is typically prepared in an injectable form by cooking up codeine with caustic chemicals including hydrochloric acid and turpentine, which rot the flesh, leaving bone and muscle tissue exposed, doctors say.

‘It’s pretty much the dirty sister of morphine and heroin,’ Hickey said. ‘A lot of times, it’s cut with something like gasoline or the ground-up red phosphorus from the tips of matches or drain cleaner,’ Hickey said.

Doctors have warned of the horrifying side effects of the homemade drug, which is said to give a more powerful high than heroin and is much cheaper to produce.

The flesh rotting that is specific to the drug occurs directly at the injection site, often leaving users with wounds to their feet or arms.

Krokodil’s, medical name is desomorphine and is created by mixing codeine with gasoline, paint thinner, hydrochloric acid, iodine and red phosphorous.

There are reportedly nearly three million users in Russia and the epidemic began in Siberia and the Russian Far East.

The drug causes flesh to rot from the inside out and the addict’s skin becomes scaly, like a crocodile’s, hence the name.

Blood vessels burst and the surrounding tissue dies. Gangrene and amputations are a common result and sometimes bone can be exposed.

The drug high lasts around an hour and a half. It is three times cheaper to produce than heroin.

Abuse of the home-made narcotic was first reported in middle and eastern Siberia in 2002, but has since spread throughout Russia and the neighboring former Soviet republics, according to medical reports.
