Child has a fever, threw up. Could this be from going swimming?

my 5 year old went swimming yesterday and it was a little bit chilly. Later in the day he had a fever and threw up, today he has been the samer and in bed all day. Could this be from going swimming and his body was shocked from the cold? He was ok until he went swimming, in fact I was surprised because he had a virus about a month month and a half ago.

Hi dear,
Thanks for placing your query through HCM.
I can appreciate your concerns.
It is very likely that he caught this virus from pool.
Viral infections are very common in young kids & it is not uncommon or unusual to have 10-12 infections in a year even for otherwise normal & healthy kids.
Can use paracetamol syrup in appropriate doses & ensure he is drinking enough liquids.
There is no reason to worry.
Hope I have answered your query
Wish you son good health.
