Infection is always a concern. The main cause of infection is zombie attacks, but rummaging through trash piles can be nasty also. There are 2 ways of treating infection:
- Consuming Vishpirin (craftable)
- Resting by a lit campfire
Vishpirin can be crafted with Fresh Water, Seed-Astics, Energy Drink, and an Empty Can.
Use bandages to stop bleeding
Use the “Treat Wounds” app to clean wounds and heal or prevent infection. To clean wounds you will need Vishpirin and Fresh Water.
Dirty Water can be purified into Fresh Water at a Campfire if you have an Empty Can in your inventory.
A dead animal can be consumed if you place it near a burning campfire. You may drop the animal from your belt (Scroll-wheel) if you’ve been using it to keep warm.
Berries can be scavenged from some bushes to provide food and hydration. Look for bushes with purple or lavender colored flowers. These are, however, not your usual wild berries. These will make you intoxicated and can impair your reactions. Vishpirin will reduce the effects, so weigh the cost of starvation versus burning up valuable medicine.
