Medicine is an item in the Animal Crossing series, appearing from Doubutsu no Mori e+ onward. It can be purchased at Tom Nook's store or Timmy and Tommy's store (once upgraded to T&T Mart) for 400 Bells (1,200 in Doubutsu no Mori e+). Medicine can heal sick villagers and cure Bee (or Wasp) stings. In games up to and including Animal Crossing: New Leaf (excluding Welcome amiibo where sickness was disabled), a villager's sickness usually requires three doses of Medicine to be cured. After their ailment has passed, they will gift the player with a random item to show their appreciation. Any player can give medicine, though it is the player who contributes the most that receives the gift.
In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, any villager whom the player is friends with will supply Medicine to the player should they get stung by a bee.
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Medicine will cure a sick villager instantly and can be crafted using a recipe obtained by talking to villagers while stung. To craft it, the player needs 1 Wasp Nest and 3 Clumps of Weeds. However, Medicine may still be gifted by villagers.
