Do enemies have to be poisoned by contagion to explode upon death, or will any poison source trigger the explosion?

Contagion poison damage[edit source]

I'm testing Contagion currently. At first, it seemed like that the poison damage was based on Isaac's damage stat; however, with high damage items like Ipecac or Ipecac + Cricket's Head, the poison damage is around 5 times less than Isaac's damage stat. Does this just affect high damage items so the item isn't OP? I'm confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated. --Sirtimmothybrentwood 05:33, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

For all poison effects that scale off of Isaac's damage, Ipecac just seems to be a 2x multiplier rather than a +40. --Exschwasion (talk) 18:45, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
