In brief: Fever

If you are trying to differentiate dengue fever and malaria, check the fever. If it is periodic (comes an goes) especially if it comes every 12, 24 36 or 72 hours and lasts for a couple hours then resolves, it is probably malaria.
If the fever comes and stays for a couple days then it is more likely dengue.
