Zombie skin-rotting ‘tranq’ drug takes over streets of America as expert warns there’s no medication to reverse overdose

Tranq is the common term for xylazine, an animal tranquilizer drug that is now most commonly cut with heroin or fentanyl.

Xylazine is approved by the Food and Drug Administration as an animal tranquilizer used by vets but is not safe for humans.

Tranq users have found raw wounds erupting on their skin at the injection sites which have rotted the surrounding skin and caused infection, sometimes leading to amputation.

The wounds turn into a crust of dead tissue called eschar, which if untreated will cause people to lose limbs.
