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?

Not to scare you, but if I were you, I'll take him to the emergency room. It could be nothing, but I think is better to behave like an over-protective mom. If you feel you don't know what to do, take him to his doctor or the er. If you are writing this post is because you are concerned.
I play by this rule: if I feel I should be asking, then I better go to a healthcare provider
I hope this helps you, and I'm sorry if I scared you!
