In brief: 2-7 days

Dengue fever is increasing and is a common cause for fever in travelers returning from the tropics or subtropics.
Symptoms develop 3-14 days after mosquito bite. Other symptoms include headache, pain behind eyes, muscle aches, joint pain, rash, and nausea. About 1% progress on to the more worrisome dengue hemorrhagic fever (dhf). If you suspect df see your doctor and avoid use of ibuprofen.

In brief: Depends on type

Most often dengue acute sx last 7 to10 days.
Usually there is full recovery within a month. If you had dengue hemorrhagic fever or dengue shock syndrome recovery can be longer depending on complications.
