In brief: Sunpoisoning
Sun poisoning is an entity that consists of mild to moderate sunburn, dehydration, and is mild body temperature elevation.
The dehydration and temperature give a malaise which we call sun poisoning. Cooling the skin with lukewarm showers and taking in fluids are best way to treat. Aspirin is very effective for this. And next time, avoid excessive exposure and use sunblock.
