Here's how to get rid of and cure Scarlet Rot in Elden Ring.

Status effects can make or break your fight and it’s crucial to know what exactly they do and how to change their effect. In this guide, we will take a look at how to reduce, cure and remove Scarlet Rot in Elden Ring. As you know, Scarlet Rot will deal damage to the target pretty quickly and it will last for quite some time. But don’t worry, these items and incantations will help you out.


How to Reduce Scarlet Rot in Elden Ring?

To reduce Scarlet Rot and avoid losing HP, players can use the Immunizing Cured Meat consumable, which will temporarily boost immunity. This increased immunity is useful to mitigate the buildup of Scarlet Rot for your character. Further ahead, we’ve listed some more items that increase immunity. Make sure the immunity level is high because that determines your susceptibility to rot.

Where to Find Immunizing Cured Meat (Location)


When you are in the areas of Waypoint Ruins in Limgrave and Siofra River well, you need to explore the location well to obtain them. Look for this item in shrubs, stairs, or loot it from a corpse. In case you don’t want to go through this hassle, you can find a Nomadic Merchant in Liurnia of the Lakes and directly purchase it from them in return for 2000 Runes.

Materials required:


  • 5 Rowa Fruit
