      This is probably obvious to others, but I was surprised to learn this removes maggot infestation caused by the maggot monsters in Cathedral of the Deep and Irithyll Dungeon, in addition to curing the bleed buildup. Useful if you have a stupid moment like I did and forget to bring a torch, or your co-op partner doesn't know how to remove them/forgot to bring their own torch.

        Just to clarify, while Caressing Tears can actually cure Toxic, it will only cure Toxic when the status effect is actually active.<br/><br/>This oddity rather confused me at first because I tried to cure Toxic in the same way I cured Poison, get onto dry land so the bar isn't constantly filling up, and then use the Miracle, regardless of whether Poison was active or just close to activating. With Toxic on the other hand, you have to let yourself become Toxic, then and only then can you use Caressing Tears to cure it.

          If you're dropping your sign at the beginning of the Farron Keep swamp, attune this spell.<br/><br/>It only takes 12 faith, and 14 FP per cast, it completely cures poison / toxic and removes all buildup. World-hosts will love you for being able to cure their poison whenever you get to dry land, and you'll be able to last longer when co-oping with multiple people since you wont be rinsing through your supply of purple moss.

            Does this only work once afflicted? I had about 90% build-up of poison and used the caressing tears, but it did not go away. Of course the next hit from a beast poisoned me. Why should I have to wait until actually poisoned to use it? It should clear the build-up as well.
