Default Re: Disease or Sickness?

Relieve sickness specifies that it affects symptoms rather than underlying causes, while cure disease specifies it removes the cause but leaves existing effects in place.

So in this case "sickness" refers to symptoms, while "disease" refers to causes.

As with many things in GURPS, the description is more important than the name.
