FS#22039 - Cure Poison doesn't work on Afflicted poison spray

Potions of Cure Poison do not work on the Poison Spray effect that Afflicted can inflict on the player. The player continues to take full damage for the full duration even after consuming a Cure Poison potion.

To the best of my knowledge, the reason for the issue "appears to be" the fact that poison spit is classified as a shout. I could be completely wrong on that though, so someone else that understands it better (like MadCat) should take a look at it to be sure.

Being a SHOU form likely isn't the cause; the SHOU forms still point to SPEL forms, which then point to MGEF forms. I'll investigate and compare to a known functional poison MGEF/SPEL when I can.

EDIT: I think that the Cure Poison effect may not work on taper-off effects (like fire damage). The assigned damage is over two seconds, but has a taper effect of four seconds. The taper effect works after the effect expires.

Basically, the Cure Poison doesn't detect any poison effects to remove and does nothing. Try gulping down a Cure potion within the two seconds that the effect is applied to test this.
