The world of Baldur's Gate 3 isn't exactly what we'd call friendly.

Nearly everything you come across can (and most likely will) try to kill you. If you're not careful, you'll end up dying in a plethora of horrible ways and regularly find yourself loading up an earlier save and hoping for the best.

Sometimes you'll be minding your own business trying to stay safe and then bam! Diseases. Flesh rot is one of the most annoying ones, but there are plenty more.


If you're hoping to find out how to cure diseases in Baldur's Gare 3, then you're in the right place.

How to cure diseases in Baldur's Gate 3

The good news is that you can cure diseases, unlike in real-life where they tend to be a little bit harder to deal with.

All you need is the right tools, which in this case, tends to be a spell.

The spell in question is called Lesser Restoration, and it's one that a lot of classes get access too, but in the current state of the game, your main person for this spell is going Shadowheart, as she's a Cleric.

She'll get the spell at level 3, but other classes can get the spell too.

Which classes can get this spell?

Obviously, this spell isn't limited to just Shadowheart. In fact, all Clerics, no matter which domain they choose to go with, can learn Lesser Restoration at level 3.

Other classes should be able to get this spell when as the game grows and adds more levels and classes, which should mean that Druids, Rangers, Paladins, and even Bards can unlock this spell eventually.

However, for now at least, if you want to get rid of diseases you need a Cleric. They're a powerful class anyway, so it's not like you're making the game harder by having one in your party.
