When our body temperature is high, why do we feel cold?

I was recently sick and my body temperature was 38.6°C. It felt like I was in a refrigerator.
So, why do we feel cold when we have a high body temperature? Shouldn’t we feel hot instead?

You feel coldness because your body is warmer than the air around you. Same reason why you feel hotness when you put your hand near an oven.
