ARS Timeline

Hi Everyone
I have a question about the average time frame from initial exposure to HIV to the ARS illness. Is it possible to develop the flulike illness 4-5 days after exposure? Or is that too soon??? Is it more likely to happen a little later? Please help folks, any advise is appreciated.
Thanks
Harj

4 to 5 days is to soon.ARS Symptoms appear 2 to 4 weeks after infection and last for 1 to 2 weeks.The 3 classic ARS symptoms are very high fever,very sore throat and rash on trunk--torso and limbs.
