My son has a fever and his left leg is swollen and tender on the inside from his groin to his foot, also his leg is red.
Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
As per your description,possible differential diagnosis may include Deep vein thrombosis,Cellulitis.
And his symptoms shouldn't be ignored and it's strongly advised to visit ER or consult your family doctor ASAP.
In the meantime he should take OTC Motrin and elevate his leg.
Color doppler study of limb should be advised.
Hope this helps.
