Yesterday he was tired and whiny. Around 2 am today, he woke me up whining and had a fever of 101.6. I attributed this to teething, however I give him Tylenol and he seems somewhat normal once it kicks in but about 3 or 4 hrs after, the fever is back just as high. He has two small, but swollen lymph nodes behind his right ear. Even when the fever is down, his neck is really hot to touch. Two days ago, he had small, red bumps in his groin area but it's not as noticeable today. Waiting for a call back from his dr but in the meantime, does this sound like chicken px or something else?

Doesn't sound like chicken pox, could be a sinus infection if he's got swelling behind his ears. I hope you were able to get him into the doctor today.
