Fever an hr after leaving beach

03:22 Nov 26 2022 Brighton LeSands Beach NSW

Description
Brighton LeSands in NSW. Walked in water from the main promenade up to Dolls point and back. There where thousands of these weird long sand tube things in the water, but it also stunk a bit which I assumed was from a storm drain. Hr after leaving I got a fever and as soon as I got home I was nauseous with hot sweats. I didn’t tan or butn so not sunstroke.
