Rabies - What are the symptoms?

If someone has been infected rabies symptoms usually take 1-3 months to develop, but this incubation period can vary.3  If an infected animal bites a part of the body that has a rich supply of nerves like the face, neck and finger, symptoms are likely to develop more quickly.3  The early symptoms include fever, headache and being generally unwell.1  As the disease advances symptoms like hallucinations, fear of water and paralysis develop, and often results in death. 1
