In brief: Muscle inflammation
The process you describe is producing an inflammatory reaction in the kids calf muscles with fever.
There are a number of possibilities that will require an urgent evaluation to sort out. It could be something simple or something bad.

In brief: SEE YOUR DOCTOR
Most often it is a good practice to have a child seen by their pediatrician after 24 hours of fever.
Go see your doctor!

In brief: Take him to MD ASAP
This child should be seen by a physician soon.
Will not try to entertain a diagnosis on such little history and without examining him, but he sounds very ill and the conditions i can think of will require professional intervention. Hope he recovers soon. Give us a follow-up.
