    Introduction: The present study is undertaken to assess the knowledge about necrotizing fasciitis among the South Indian population. Materials and Methods: The survey was conducted through an online basis. The survey consisted of questions which would educate the participant on the condition and also grasp on how much information they already possess. The initial question would rely on their present knowledge, and the next question would be to educate the person on the same. The survey was circulated among the student population primarily in the health-care field. The study was designed such that there would be no overlap of information between concurrent questions. A total of 80 responses were obtained from the surveyed population and was analyzed. Results: The study results reveal that majority of the South Indian population are unaware about the condition called necrotizing fasciitis and are also not aware about the modalities of management of the particular disease. Conclusion: The awareness about the particular disease should be enhanced, and more awareness programs should be conducted to improve the knowledge that persists about the disease.
