Scale Rot

I think this is actually "scale rot" and not "scalerow." Besides the fact that "scale rot" makes a lot more sense, there are at least two references to "scale rot" within the actual books. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, when Harry is looking up information on dragons for the first task of the Triwizard Tournament, he comes across advice on treating scale rot. Then, in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Hagrid states that a couple of salamanders have scale rot and specifically mentions rubbing chili powder on them - and chili is part of the treatment regimen listed on the scan from the Dragon Breeding for Pleasure and Profit notes. So unless anyone has any objections, I will soon move this page to scale rot. ProfessorTofty 00:26, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

You're correct. The page from JKR's site is crumpled up, hiding the final letter of "scalerot" under a fold. I've moved the article to the proper title and added in the information from the books. Starstuff (Owl me!) 19:36, September 28, 2011 (UTC)
