will using posions heal?
Make that, Would poisons heal as with an undead character? Or is the only remedy to cure the Decaying status with Cleanse Wounds?

Using a healing potion would damage you if you were Decayed. You would want to clear the Decaying status before drinking your potion. If your character is undead, healing potions would already harm you and being Decayed does not change that.
From my own experience, no. Decaying does not give you healing if you recieve poison abilities or step into poison surfaces.
