The Root Rot status effect begins when players stand in a cloud of red smoke for a tad too long. This will not damage players’ health as much, but it will stop the character at different places to start coughing. When this happens, no other actions can be performed which hurdles any further progress.

A quick temporary solution to this would be to roll over. This will break the animation and will help get back to normal quicker. However, the overall solution to this is not that difficult or expensive to complete, so that is much more preferred.
