The Common Symptoms and Treatment Options of Rabies

Symptoms. It is most important that an individual watch for symptoms of rabies after being bitten by a wild animal or dog that may be infected. Typically, the incubation period of rabies spans from 4 to 12 weeks, so symptoms will not begin to manifest until then. It is recommended that individuals who suspect they have been infected undergo treatment just in case. The very first noticeable symptoms of rabies are very flu like with a fever, tingling around the body, weakness of the muscles, and pain or burning at the site of the scratch or bite. There are two classifications for rabies that both exhibit different symptoms once the virus has attacked most of the central nervous system, furious rabies and paralytic rabies.
