There was no cure for the sweating sickness, but there were survivors. Since the virus disappeared after the 1551 outbreak, it is an illness that hasn't been largely studied. It is theorized that the sweating sickness caused massive dehydration and that was what led to death. If the victim was healthy and hydrated when the illness hit, the likelihood of survival was greater. Anne Boleyn was among the survivors in the outbreak in 1528 where thousands died in a matter of a few weeks.
