Heat bumps tanning bed

Common Questions and Answers about Heat bumps tanning bed


Avatar n tn I have this same problem also, but it just recently developed. I have tanned in tanning bed for 3 years and just recently did I start getting these itchy bumps. The thing is I don't get them when I just tan in the real sun. Does anything help the itching??
Avatar n tn Hi, This does seem to be an allergic break-out.It comes under the category of physical allergy.Physical allergies are allergic reactions to cold, sunlight, heat, or minor injury. Certain drugs are capable of sensitizing the skin to sunlight. The result is phototoxicity, which appears as an increased sensitivity to sunlight or as localized skin rashes on sun-exposed areas. Sunlight, even without drugs, causes immediate urticaria in some people. Shade and sunscreens are necessary.
Avatar f tn I Use to break out in little bumps that kinda looked like welts on my stomach after tanning but now that i've started back up they seem worse and now there is no bumps.. it is extremely itchy and nothing is helping is it just dry skin or a heat rash?
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms they looks like heat rash or sweat dermatitis. Prickly heat (miliaria) is an itchy skin rash caused by trapped sweat. It tends to occur on areas of the body where skin touches skin, such as under the breasts, on the inner thighs, and under the arms. Tiny red spots with itching and pricking sensation are the characteristic appearance of this rash. Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime. use a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil.
1025521 tn?1252511328 Oh my goodness! Everyyear, I go through the same thing!!! I am an RN as well, and I usually get the welts and bumps on my belly and back. Places the sun doesn't normally get to, but slightly of areas. But to be honest, it itches, and looks gross. Cutting to the chase, it'll go away in acouple of weeks. It is the heat from the tanning bed mixed with amount of "sun" you skin has to adjust to!
Avatar n tn I would ask the people that run the tanning salon. I know there are different strength beds. A wolfe bed is very strong but there are also sunlight beds. If you talk to them and try hydrating, see if it works. If not then yes, I'd stop.

Avatar m tn After the first day of tanning my friend noticed that she had these itchy little red bumps all over her chest and neck areas. I didn't have them. The next day was cooler out so we didn't get much sun. However, I discovered that I too had these itchy red bumps all over my chest, neck and upper arms. These bumps got much worse every morning and the itch decreased just a little bit before 8 pm each night after the application of a lot of makeup.
Avatar m tn Last year while tanning, I began to get these rash like tiny red bumps between my breast. They are almost like blisters. when my bra rubbed against them it turned into this scabby like area. This year they are starting off a lot worse and even on the upper part of my stomach. It itches a little but mostly not pleasing to the eye. They also burn a little. What do I do to get rid of this??? Its not an allergic reaction to lotion or cleaners.. I have eliminated those things already..
1730786 tn?1310096414 Hi all, So I have tanned before and I have fairly sensitive skin with lots of freckles, but usually after I continue tanning in the bed and slowly building up my time, my skin gets use to the UV rays. It takes time but I can usually get there. Until now.. It all started a few months ago when I was trying to build up a base tan before summer and after about a week or so of tanning I noticed that I was getting this rash looking thing on my chest.
1444317 tn?1284398497 It's hard to tell if they are flesh colored or if they are light red.My stomach is tanned.i do not go to the tanning bed nor have I been in the sun on the past few weeks.They are localized to just these two areas.When I run my hand over the areas it feels like very fine sand paper.That's how many there are.They are really not even visible to others.Can anyone tell me what this is?Thanks for any info!!
Avatar f tn for the past few months I have been going to a tanning bed and I've noticed itchy red bumps on certain parts of my skin. I've cut down on the tanning bed but the bumps have gotten worse. I am aware it is probably a heat rash and the tanning bed is causing but I would like to know what can help prevent it and what can help take it away or calm it down?
Avatar f tn The day before my wedding, I went tanning and the gals behind the desk recommended I get into a huge new tanning bed. It was a tad bit hot and I came out of it with red raised bumps on my legs. I then went on my honey moon to Mexico where it was extremely hot and was given a pharmaceutical cream for the bumps and they disappeared. Now that it is 5 years later, I've been on many vacations since and didn't have any sort of reaction for about 3 years.
Avatar n tn ) This year for some reason my skin is getting big water type itchy bumps only from the tanning bed it has never bothered me before now I am taking Midrin 100 mg for headaches could this be one of the side affects? of the medicine?
Avatar n tn For the last 20 years I have gotten small red bumps on the sides of my fingers. They don't blister. They start out as one or two and then I might get a few more and they seem to cluster up on only the sides of my fingers. They are not itchy but they are sore to the touch when you run your finger over them. It feels like you have a splinter. They are slightly raised and red in color. They will stay for varying lengths of time and then dry up and go away.
Avatar n tn I suddenly have developed tiny bumps on my upper lip. A few months ago this happened in just one little patch but it went away, and I can't remember if I did anything. But just a few days ago they appeared again on both sides of my upper lip. Then, the next day they had spread and now go all the way along the ridge of my upper lip. They aren't particularly noticeable except they change the shape of my lip, making it look smaller than it was in the places where they are on the very edge.
Avatar n tn this small bumps that you have on your fingers are probably coming from and allergic reaction to something your eating or touching or it could be a heat rash because at this moment i have the same red little bumps on my fingers and its irratating and the best thing to do is not scratch it and expecially try to not go in the sun alot and keep the temperatures around you at a moderate tempewrature because like i said it could be a heat rash I also have the bumps and i go to the doctors on the 31 o
Avatar f tn (Day2=4th calender day, Day 3= 6th calender day ECT) Day 1- No Change small amount of bumps Day 2- Few bumps Day 3- Many bumps Day 4- Holy crap I cant believe the amount of bumps I have on the back of my hand this is pretty disgusting I feel like I have herpes of the hand.... people give you weird looks and you family wont shake your hand anymore. But in my hypothesis I wrote down that this would be a part and in my eyes everything was going as planned.
Avatar n tn I first got the bumps on my elbows a few months ago and i thought it was from the tanning bed. They eventually faded away. Recently I started getting them again this time they're 10x worse. They're all over my fingers and spreading down my hands, elbows & inside of elbows, they're on my hips, knees & back of knees, also have a few on my feet.
Avatar n tn If you're fair skinned and have recently been exposed to the sun, they're probably "heat bumps" or "sun bumps". I have gotten these since I was in my younger teen years, I'm 21 now, and I only get them in extreme climates (warm, not cold) and after applying most sunscreens. You could either be extremely sensitve to the sun, or allergic to ingredients in the sunscreen you are wearing.
Avatar n tn Especially if you recently began using a tanning bed (which then of course puts you at risk for fungal infections) and not covering up, certain areas that don't see sun often can become traumatized and you won't realize how much so until the skins had time to undarken; it's the skin's way of getting rid of dead cells. Upper level tanning beds can penetrate the skin to multiple layers deep, meaning a much longer time waiting for new skin cells to surface that don't itch like hell fire.
Avatar n tn overnight, it went from tiny bumps to raised clusters of burning bumps..they keep gettin larger everyday..the bumps look like clear fluid sacs, but im too afraid to pop them considering they constantly burn... ive had similiar ones before, but not this bad, they didnt burn...i thought it was mulluscum contagiosum (which ive had before)..but with further research, mulluscum contagiosum does not cause any sort of pain related symptoms..
Avatar n tn The doctor said the bumps could be a numerous of things and to keep an eye on them for a month if they don't go away come back. I noticed they are sensitive to heat, when I sit in the tanning bed they hurt. Monday came and I started getting pain in my left wrist. Monday night pain in my right wrist,. Then tuesday pain in the knees, Wednesday pain in my ancles and feet. Thursday a little pain in my elbows and swelling of my hands a feet.
Avatar f tn I have sun poisoning from a tanning bed I went to yesterday. I noticed this morning white bumps on my private area (I am a female). I wore underwear. The bumps are inside not on outside where the skin was not exposed. I developed the rash all over late last night. My body was so red and hot that even wearing a t-shirt I was uncomfortable and had to turn the air conditioning way down. I am concerned. I haven't slept with anyone for two years. I have weird sensitive skin.
Avatar n tn I have little bumps all over my chest, neck, stomach, and abdomen that itch, and burn. Could this be from the tanning bed? I just don't understand why that's the only part that burned when i was on my back, or if it could just be red from being irritated. I've tried benadryl, calomine lotion, some cortaid spray and nothing is helping. I feel like it's spreading. Any ideas what it could be?
Avatar n tn Have spent some time in the sun and tanning beds my whole life (Im 23 years old). I havent been in a tanning bed in quite some time, but recently went. The next day I noticed red/purplish spots all over the inside of my forearms (rang in size of tiny-small freckles). I have had a few similar looking spots on the tops of my hands before after tanning that later turn darker brown, than lighter brown, then the disappear. This is also happening with the spots on my forearms.
250701 tn?1320978365 I am well acclimated to heat and humidity. I am not exactly the beach or tanning type but I already know how my skin responds to the pool, various sun screen/block, the sun, sweating and most important: to what degree the meds are photosensitive. **photosensitivity is the huge wild card here that is unique to your physiology. All we can do is share how we respond in the conditions you outlined.
Avatar n tn Basically it was just a stand up tanning bed. But he said that UVB lights are less harmful and than the UVA(I hope I'm keeping this straight) from the regular tanning beds. However...the treatments are quite expensive and I'm not sure that my insurance is going to cover it. Plus it takes about 15-20 minutes to get to his office so I can't justify going there 3 times a week for a 1 minute treatment. I'm just going to sign up for tanning at a local salon.
