The first symptoms of smallpox usually appear 10 to 14 days after you're infected. During the incubation period of 7 to 17 days, you look and feel healthy and can't infect others. Following the incubation period, a sudden onset of flu-like symptoms occurs. These include:
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Overall discomfort
  • Severe fatigue
  • Severe back pain
  • Vomiting
A few days later, flat, red spots appear first on your face, hands and forearms, and later on your trunk. Within a day or two, many of these lesions turn into small blisters filled with clear fluid, which then turns into pus. Scabs begin to form eight to nine days later and eventually fall off, leaving deep, pitted scars. To learn more you should go to a medical professional. Keyword: symptoms smallpox
