Acute HIV infection: Fever alone almost never is due to ARS; it only occurs along with other symptoms like sore throat, enlarged lymph nodes, and sometimes skin rash. ARS symptoms typically start 7-10 days after catching the virus (never sooner than week). Once fever or other ARS symptoms start, usually they last at least 1-2 weeks. If possibly exposed or otherwise concerned, see a doctor ASAP. Good luck.
