It depends on the virus and it depends on you. If it is a virus that you are naturally more resistant to, you may not get any symptoms at all. But some viruses can begin to do their thing in as little as ten hours. Most often, it takes between one-and-a-half to five days to get symptomatic.

It generally takes between 3 and 6 days to develop a cold once you are exposed to the germ. Depending on your age and weight and your overall health, the severity or how long a cold takes to clear, plays a great part in the cycle of getting sick and then well.

Depending on how weak or strong your immune system is will dicate how fast a cold will show signs and how severe they will be, but generally within two to five days is fairly normal. Several medications are avaiable over the counter at your local pharmacy that can boost your immune system and help you fight the virus.
