Studies have shown that human skin is very sensitive to sudden change in temperature and this is a reason sudden exhaustion. When you are in a high humid place, your skin is not able to dissipate the body heat to the environment properly, because of the humidity. Our body undergoes a state called hyperpyrexia, in which it tries to dissipate the extra heat via blood flow to the external surface of the skin. With the excess amount of blood flowing to the skin and relatively less amount of blood going to the muscles and other internal organs, metabolism is sure to decrease resulting in fatigue or worse heat stroke!
