Incubation Period and Symptoms

Following an incubation period of 10-21 days (this may be shorter in the immunocompromised), there is usually a prodromal "flu-like" illness before the onset of the rash. This coryzal phase is more likely in adults. The lesions typically appear in crops, rapidly progressing from red papules through vesicles to open sores that crust over and separate by 10 days. The distribution of the rash is centripetal (i.e., more over the trunk and face than on the limbs). This is the converse of small pox. In adults, the disease is often more severe, with lesions involving the scalp and mucous membranes of the oropharynx.
