Dear Doc,

Correction... It's Acute Viral Syndrome (AVS) and not ARS. (Sorry!)

To the best of your knowledge, study & research... whats the quickest days does AVS start??

Could it be 3 days.. considering the peron has fever, diarrhea, stress, PLUS the person is thin/slim and he ia an Asian..??

Does blood type of a person matter to the timing of AVS??

Thank you for you usual & prompt reply. Thank you.

Response from Dr. Henry

Rarely three days. To my knowledge the blood type does not matter. I recommend discussing with a good primary care doc or at an HIV testing site to relieve your anxiety. KH
