Public Health Alert:

The Harford County Health Department Harm Reduction Program has received reports of soft tissue injuries, including abscesses and development of gangrene, associated with injection drugs recently in circulation. Similar reports have also been made in Frederick and Cecil Counties, MD.

Development of abscesses and cellulitis after injecting heroin cut with xylazine (commonly used as a horse tranquilizer) has been seen. Bags containing this substance are stamped “Ohh yeah”.

Reports also include development of gangrene after injecting contents of a gel capsule containing what was believed to be heroin, sold under the name “No Shorts”. The powder turns pink/red when water is added. The injury starts as a small discoloration (purplish) at the injection site and progresses outward into an open wound, sometimes almost black in color.

If you have an injection-related wound that shares any of the similarities above it is recommended you seek immediate medical attention.

Call the Harm Reduction Program at (410) 612-1779 for information on overdose prevention (including free Narcan®) and wound care.
Contact Behavioral Health at (410) 877-2340 for information on substance use treatment and peer recovery services.
