Klebsiella Pneumoniae Incubation Period
Average 2 days: The typical incubation period for influenza is 1—4 days (average: 2 days). Adults shed influenza virus from the day before symptoms begin through 5—10 days after illness onset. However, the amount of virus shed, and presumably infectivity, decreases rapidly by 3—5 days after onset in an experimental human infection model. ...Read more
Tricky syphilis: Syphilis can appear one week to THREE months after an exposure. Part of that has to do with how many bacteria came across at the time of infection. Obviously if there were alot of those germs, the infection would get started earlier than otherwise. Serological or blood testing should parallel those symptoms- it gets more complicated though when exposures were in the past. An ID doc can help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Presume "no": The cause of pityriasis rosea is unknown, but it may be a virus (because sometimes several people get the rash around the same time). If it is due to a virus, the way it is transmitted from one person to another is also unknown. So, the rash is not considered contagious. It goes away by itself in about 6 weeks. If worried, or in a special situation, one should discussed it with his doctor. ...Read more
I have read that cats with rabies during incubation period will not pass on rabies. Is it true? I'm very worried.
Rabies and cats: An animal might 'shed' viruses and therefore be infective before actual symptoms are shown. For dogs and rabies, we know this can occur up to 6 days before the dog shows real symptoms of rabies. So if there's any question, it's best to find the cat and isolate it. Then, if in 10 days the animal develops rabies you will have your answer. Animals bites, esp. Cats, should be evaluated by a doctor. ...Read more
If you touch someone with herpes can you prevent it before the incubation period can you just wash the part of where you touched it?
Washing usually helps: Viruses gain access through any open skin wound. If you have a cut or an insect bite it is a potential portal of entry for any type of virus to set up housekeeping and cause trouble. Of course you're not going to end up with the herpes virus unless you have direct contact. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the incubation period of n fowleri? Why do some sites say 1-7 and others go up to 15 days? Seems most cases are 7 or less when symp show
N. fowleri: CDC states Sx's start 1-9 days (median 5 days) AFTER EXPOSURE. People usually die 1-18 days (median 5 days) AFTER START of SYMPTOMS. These are two different statstics. Because there have only been 143 cases in the US between 1962 & 2017 - new cases may make slight changes in overall stats. There have even been some recent survivors! REF: https://www. Cdc.

Very wide range: "Incubation period" can mean time to symptoms or time until transmissible to partners. Many STDs never cause symptoms, especially in women. When symptoms occur, typical times are gonorrhea 3-5 days; chlamydia 1-2 weeks; herpes 3-10 days; syphilis 3-6 weeks; HIV 10-20 days; HPV 1-2 mo. To transmit, 6 mo. To 2 years for warts or abnormal pap smear. If at risk, get tested; don't wait for symptoms. ...Read more
This is probably the wrong question. There is no 'incubation' period. If you get infected with HIV you are infected with HIV and must be treated to prevent the immune destruction that leads to aids.
Now, from exposure to full on infection is usually a fourteen to twenty-one day process. The new HIV viral tests can be 100% accurate at day 21 or later. ...Read more
