I contracted a common disease and went to a shrine to have it cured,
it was not and no matter how many times I go to a shrine it will not
be cured. I have since taken restore attribute potions to cancel the
disease's effects but people in the world still see the disease. I am
sure this is a bug and am wondering if there is anything I can do
about it. I have previously downloaded all the morrowind updates and
patches so I do not believe that will be an option.

What's the name of the disease?
Are you sure it's a common disease and not a blight disease or corprus?

Try asking to cure Blight Disease instead. It may be that you've
caught a disease that is classed as a Blight Disease (and thus more
serious), rather than a Common Disease.

If you've contracted Corprus Disease, *there is no cure* - except as
part of the game's main plot (one of the many rules of RPGs: "If there
is an incurable disease that you are warned against contracting, at
some point of the plot you will have to contract it and cure it".
Right up there with "If there is a race, people, city, religion or
nation that is expecting or hoping for a Hero, Saviour, God-Incarnate,
Champion or similar being (or descendant of such) to arrive and be
their champion, then at some point in the game's plot you will have to
either *be* that champion or *fight* that champion, and most usually
both"...)

It suggests an interesting plot concept -- you could play a PC whose
job was to locate, train and promote a hero that meets the criteria of
the prophecy. Kind of like being Don King; the hero gets the glory,
you get the cash.

You could add complexity (and replayability) by offering up several
potential NPC trainees. The PC could focus on one, or train up several
and weigh the options. The endgame would depend on which NPC you
picked as the champion.

And you're just giving that stuff away for free in here? :^)>

I'd buy a game like that if it was well implemented.

Cheers,

Boy, this last sentence reminds me of Planescape: Torment...

Happens to me all the time. If you're sure you are using the right spell
(common vs. blight), a potion or spell, or an Imperial Cult altar will cure
it. I don't know why this happens, but it does.
