Are chickenpox symptoms similar to red spots on foot and swollen foot?

Our son came home from his moms with a lot of red spots on his foot and his foot was swelled. When he woke up this morning he had more red spots on his leg. Throughout the day he has gotten more red spots and they are starting to go to a head. We are not sure if it is chickenpox or something else. Please help.
