Antibiotics and tanning

Common Questions and Answers about Antibiotics and tanning


Avatar n tn unfortunately, it came back with a vengance when school started back up and i dont have time to go to the tanning bed. im on doxycycline, clindamycin, and a benzoyl wash, and nothing works but the sun.
Avatar f tn It's possible to get an allergic reaction to suntanning, and also you could have a problem from tanning if you are on certain antibiotics. I hate to second the notion that you have already rejected, but it's kind of crazy to tan. Based on how my mother-in-law's arms looked, tanning a lot early in life gives you cooked-turkey looking skin later in life, and at 19 you look beautiful enough without the help of tanning.
Avatar n tn i've read the responses and frankly don't feel the answer is here...i tan everyyear in a tanning bed and last year had this same experience at one tanning salon and went to another and didn't get thought the bacteria or the cleaner might be the answer until this year i bought my own tanning bed (used) ...i clean it well after each use and the bulbs need replacing because i haven't gotten red at all and haven't broke out in a sweat at all so its not from the cleaner or sweating.
Avatar n tn when I lay on my stomach i lay on a towl to cover the penis up, when I roll over on my back I dont cover it up, I am not a daily tanner and have my own beds at my business, I spray bed down before laying and after, so what can cause this
Avatar n tn Ive recently went in about 3 days ago and used a tanning lotion for a faster darker skin achievement. I used it once before and was pretty satisfied. But this time I noticed I got red spots/pimples right after the sesion. Could be an allergy that only appeared now? I was sun bathing the day before could that have something to do with it? Also I used a moisturiser that morning. Could it react with the tanning lotion and cause the spots to appear? What is it and how can I make them disappear?
Avatar n tn The only place I get them in between by boobs and under my boobs. everywhere else is tanning just fine with out a problem. I was curious if anyone is still having these problem's and have your found any way to make it better? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/240142'>tanning</a>.
Avatar m tn It was the heating up afterwards with a top on that didn't breathe which caused the heat rash. If one is burned from the sun or from a tanning bed then the skin tightens up and forms a layer of skin that is closed and the sweat underneath that is trying to come out of the pores that are now blocked or closed, can cause blisters from the sweat trying to get out. Also note that you can get planter's warts from tanning beds also.
Avatar n tn Could it just be adult acne, I dont have oily skin and I never really had acne as a kid. I'm thinking it was caused from the tanning bed or gym. At the time of developing the rash I was on a very high protein diet for about 3 weeks prior to the rash. also the rest of my body is acne and rash free.
Avatar n tn We are currently treating it as eczema and he is on elidel and triamcinolone cream, we have tried tanning beds and bleach baths. No relieve, this has been going since last Nov. The dermatologist wants to put him on methotraxate (sp?) (chemo drug). I am nervous, any advice???? He also has a history of lymes disease a few years ago..any possible connection?????
Avatar n tn I just had my first dose of levaquin last night and I too am allergic to sulfa (amoxicillan, morphine, iodine and shellfish as well ..lucky me) and within 30 minutes my throat closed up and I could barely breathe...I lost my voice first..thought I ate a hot pepper in my pizza or something..then the corner of my eyes started itching, my lips became red and swollen. I have NEVER had an allergic reaction this bad before!!! Thank god for the ambulance and E.R.!
Avatar f tn I went to the tanner yesterday(no more free tanning in the yard - too cold!) and noticed that a few minutes into the tan, the itching eased up considerably and amost went away entirely for a few hours afterwards. I plan on going back to the tanner in a few days to see if I get the same results - and I'm wondering if the UV rays from the tanning bed will eventually clear this rash up. Any ideas or suggestions?
Avatar n tn If she goes in a tanning bed it goes away almost immediately. We have tried hydrocortisone but it really doesn't help. It seems to have started after she had a really bad cold. Could this have anything to do with it? Would an antibacterial cream help?
Avatar n tn Thing is I tried his antibiotics and I also tried a topical cream, none of which have helped. I don't have medical insurance so it's expensive for me to visit doctor's and get the wrong medication...any thoughts??? Also, I noticed I have white pin sized bumps under the skin on my top lip - my family doctor says these are common to many people but doesn't say what from - any thoughts on this as well? Thanks!!
Avatar f tn Although, about a week ago I started experiencing some problems and went back to my dr and confirmed that I have HSV2. I started taking Valtrex and Cleocin for a bacterial infection and my outbreak. I'm not sure which medication it was, but i now have a rash on my chest and arms. My question is, is there still a possibility that I have HIV? I would think that it would have shown up in my blood test like the HSV did, but i dont know?

Echinacea can also help reduce the severity of existing cold and flu symptoms, and help quickly eliminate such conditions ( 2) Garlic.
Avatar m tn They would swell and the surrounding skin would be beet red and dry wrinkled. Similar to being overexposed in a tanning bed or in the sun. I used many computers and none has burnt my eyes like this. I figured this was from the radiation from the monitor and tuffed it out for two years. Always dealing with burnt eyes when I used the computer alot. 2007 I moved and bought a laptop. I never hooked that computer back up. My eyes got better.
Avatar f tn it comes and goes away on its own every couple weeks or so. its red and raised up and itches like crazy... i used to just get it on the inner thigh and under the breasts and the underside of the arm but now i am getting it on the forearms too. like i said its extremely itchy. i have been to the dermatologist many times and been prescribed everything from antibiotics to creams and even been treated as if it was scabies.
1217151 tn?1276903828 Avoid direct exposure to UV light; sun, tanning beds and lamps. Less commonly, oral antibiotics (and some birth control pills prescribed for acne) cause hyperpigmentation of the skin if over-exposed to UV light. Eloise.
Avatar n tn So recently in the past probably 2 month's i started getting acne on my shoulder's and i find it soo ugly but i dont know why im getting it or what's best for it? plus on rare places like one on my thigh or calf which i just thought weird... anybody no of anything good for body acne . i also get it alittle on my face more then normal but i dont know what's best for it?
Avatar n tn Doctor prescribed medications for his eczema and ointment and has taking some antibiotics and some other medications orally but it seems nothing is working. His eyes and that general area is all swollen and has red rashes all over his forehead. Of course they ithcy like heck. We did blood test too just in case but nothing came up. He is as healthy as a normal teen age boy can be. He eats well, gets proper exercises and everything is normal. I need help, any help would be grateful.
Avatar f tn I started to use self tanning lotion. So I looked at the ingredients and what do you know it has titanium. So now I'm really left wonder if the titanium is somehow linked. I have stopped using it to see if my symptoms start to decrease. Maybe this is some type of autoimmune response to it. As soon as I get my tests back I will post.
Avatar m tn i'm an avid tanner, and i'm worried that the differin will make me burn. i love tanning. it increases your serotonine reuptake and makes ya happier, hides blemishes, and just makes me feel better all over.... i know i'm at a higher risk of cancer, but blah... surely there will be a cure for that by the time i get it! LOL. =) no, seriously, i will do whatever it takes to get rid of the blackheads and zits! =D BLAH. BTW, the cream i spoke of using in my first comment was Retinol Micro..
Avatar n tn Next time any doctor wants to put you (reader) on antibiotics, tell them you have recurring yeast infections, and they will usually prescribe a preventative yeast treatment.
Avatar f tn Hi i went tanning twice the first time i went 15 i was fine... then i wait 2 days and go again this time 20 minutes and now iam in pain iam sun burned all over iam half hispanic and have not had issues tanning or burning but i did notice some white looking blisters or bumps around my belly button they dont.... itch.. or hurt but i have never got them before and iam worried will it just go away ?
Avatar f tn I was also wondering if me tanning these past few months has anything to do with it? I have been tanning and I have fair skin and have gotten sun posining, but it usually goes away within a day or two and then I dont go back for a week and turn down my minutes. I try to be smart with it now. I normally got sun posioning on my tummy and now for half the time I put a T-shirt over it and havent had problems, but have noticed a little burnage on my butt and thighs.
Avatar m tn Only past meds Accutane for 6 months 7 years ago and Adderall (Generic) 20mg x 2 a day I drove in my car yesterday and it was sunny and nice outside for the first time in a while..I drove about 1 hr and this morning I noticed that my left arm (arm that was in the window / in sunlight) is about 2-3 shades darker than my right (not in direct sunlight). There is also a bad tan line where my shirt skin is a little dry but does not appear overly dry.
Avatar n tn I went tanning a few days ago and noticed a red burning rash on my hip the following day. The bumps started out red but looked like blisters with a white glow. They have since turned black in color. What do you think it could be?
Avatar n tn Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful.In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn I thought that maybe I'm having a reaction from the tanning bed but this never happened before when I use to go tanning. I also thought it was from a lotion I was using but usually I have worse reactions when it comes to lotions since I have really sensitive skin. But I don't know what these bumps are. It's weird after they bleed they like scab over and still hurt. Do you have any idea what it could be?
Avatar n tn stay away from the tanning solons the tanning beds will dry your skin out and you will age long before your tme.also can irritate the skin and causing you to break out.vitamin e works well on those kind of skin blemishes.
