Is your son taking antibiotics ? You really should call his physician and get that Strep A test done to make sure he has scarlet fever.
My 4 year old son did the same exact thing last week. I took him to the ped and did the whole blood woork up and they couldn't find anything. The Doc was stumped, we were told to treat the symptoms with tylenol and benadryl. It lasted about 48 hours. Hope your son is better.
