Thanks for query,
Your son has spots but he has fever or not? Usually the spots are associated with rise in temperature.
There are other reason to develop spots like Allergy,Dangue,urticaria etc.
Usually a person having chicken pox once developed immunity for it 7 he will not get it again.
Some times exceptions are also there as no immunity developed due to some reason you may get it again.
