A common infection amongst hunters, furriers, and traders, Packer's Pox is contracted from infected cattle and sheep, including their hides and wool, and from the bodies of those killed by the disease. It starts as a small itchy rash, but soon pink, depressed blisters spread across the whole body, concentrating on the torso and arms. Not the worst of the various poxes plaguing the Empire, but it does linger for a very long time, and can occasionally turn deadly. Typically, the disease has an incubation period between one to ten days, and lasts from five to fifty days.[1a]
