Afflictions are in-game status effects that you can contract through various means; the most common of which being ingesting flooding water while drowning in it. Every biome's water has different properties, and will affect which afflictions you can contract in each area. Each of them will affect the player differently and will alter their appearance, as well as release many particles that indicate to other crewmembers that the player is afflicted.

There are a few ways players can currently remove an affliction after contracting it. Here are the ways you can do this:
Medkit - You can also cure your afflictions by being healed with a Medkit by your crewmates. Every time you are healed by it, there is a 10% chance of all afflictions you contracted being cured!
Purple Elixir - Another way to cure afflictions is to utilize the Chemistry Kit to create a Purple Elixir. Throw the Purple Elixir at whoever you want to cure, and they will be cured. Using the Purple Elixir, you can even cure multiple players at once!
Sea Sickness-Causes the player to vomit often, slowing them down and placing down a vomit pile, which will slow down and infect other players.
Hypothermia-Causes the player to move slower.
Curse-Causes an aggressive ghost to spawn when the affected player dies.
Barnacle Infection-Causes small barnacle spiders to hatch in and come out of the player's mouth every so often.
