What Is The Incubation Period For Shingles
How do you calculate the incubation period of CP I saw my friend on Mon and then again on Thur and she had shingles is't from last day or the for firs?
7 to 21 days: Most of us have already had varicella (chicken pox) or been immunized, so we are immune. "Last day or first" is not an issue. If you were in the same room, especially face- to -face, for over 15 minutes you may have sustained significant exposure. If your friend was treated (acyclovir, famcyclovir, valacyclovir) your risk is very low. If your friend was already 2 or 3 weeks into it your risk is l
Shingles (Herpes Zoster) (Definition)
A painful blistering skin rash caused by the chickenpox virus (varicella zoster). Early treatment with antiviral medication (within 72 hours) lowers the risk of post-herpetic neuralgia, which is lingering skin pain after the rash disappears. ...Read more
HIV infection: 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.
Not necessarily: It the period of time between your exposure to the germs and when you actually become ill.
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.
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.See 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.
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.

10-14 days: The period from the laying of eggs to hatching of the first nymph is 10-14 days.
1 - 4 days, usually: Incubation period of most strains of influenza is 1-4 days, typically 2, but can be as long as 7 for a variant of H3n2. H3N2 is a subtype of influenza A. See http://www. Cdc. Gov/flu/professionals/acip/clinical. Htm and see http://www. Michigan. Gov/mdch/0, 4612, 7-132-8347-311534--, 00.html and see http://en. Wikipedia.

1 to 3 days: It takes 1 to 3 days for the rash to appear after you aquire the infection.
