Is there any way to diagnose fungal infections and parasites other than the blood analysis CBM?
I ask because my own experience was a little immersion-breaking. See, when I started getting “your skin itches” messages for one of my characters, I checked by @ screen for conditions; finding none, I assumed that it was just a flavour message and moved on with play. It wasn’t until I’d played for a while that I started thinking it was weird I was getting the same message over and over again - but, since there was no obvious way to find out what it meant from inside the game, I alt+tabbed to my browser and googled it.
That was how I found out that parasites were a thing, and that my character needed anti-parasitic drugs: By alt+tabbing away from the game and looking it up on the game wiki. It was a rather immersion-breaking way to find out.
Of course, I also learned from the wiki that you can use the blood analysis CBM to diagnose this condition, but I couldn’t help but feel there should’ve been some other way to diagnose it - like, maybe the condition should appear on your @ screen if you have enough ranks in the First Aid skill to recognise the symptoms, or there should be books in the world that mention the itching symptom and explain what it might mean, so that players can learn to recognise the condition in themselves.
Then it occurred to me that maybe there already are ways to learn about these conditions from within the game, and that I should probably ask before making a new feature request. Are there any?
