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 n tn I have had extremly ichy skin. It seems to be after I use the tanning bed. It is usually the worst in the middle of the night. It is not a contact thing. I have not changed anything lotions,detergents medications(not on any) etc. I usually go tanning and then to the gym to work out(cardio and weights) I have been tanning for several years at the same place and never had a problem. I have also been working out for years also. There is a slight raised rash for a short time after iching my skin.
2102940 tn?1333643102 It must have been like you said a burn from the tanning bed. My skin is fair so it makes sense. It was just a funny place to be on my side under my arm. Thanks again!!

Avatar f tn Just wondering what's everyone's opinion about laying in the tanning bed while pregnant? Anyone tan while pregnant?
Avatar n tn the last two time's i went to the tanning bed like 2-3 hours afterwards i get these little red bumps, they itch a little bit but they kind of hurt too. I've been reading alot of other discussion boards that alot of people get them after going to a taning bed. 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?
Avatar f tn tanning bed also cause skin cancer
Avatar f tn I never risked it but my doctor explained to me that the tanning bed only effects the skin so it is technically ok, just like being in the sun. The problem comes when you get too hot. Increased body temps aren't recommended. That's why no hot tubs.
Avatar m tn Hi Elmira, I had psoriasis all over my body and scalp. I saw my derm at least 12 times, had 2 biopsies, tried all kinds of prescription creams, etc. Then my husband suggested tanning. I thought, what the heck, I've tried everything else. As soon as I started tanning, my lesion went away (with the exception of my scalp). It's wonderful to have clear skin once again, however, I am left with a pins and needles feeling in my skin that neither my derm or gp can account for.
Avatar n tn However the side effects of tanning are so damaging to the skin that the results can be older looking skin or even death. Some of the most devastating results of the tanning bed side effects include: * Malignant melanoma - This is a skin cancer that is developed in the skin cells that give the skin its pigmentation. This form of melanoma has increased more rapidly over the last 4 decades than any other form of cancer.
Avatar f tn I started using a tanning bed for 1 month. Then I got very tired and had my hemoglobin had dropped over a point and a half. I also had a pleurisy attack and chest pains with radiating down my left arm and into my jaw. I went to the ER and then my is not my heart. It has now been over 2 months since I did the tanning bed the last time and my hemoglobin is slowly climbing. I have had a positive ANA just once after I had been in the sun too much.
Avatar m tn s) and that I should be treated by tanning bed. They took a biopsy with no definitive results. After the tanning bed...I get them less but they still come. I am also now Vitamin D deficient. Any clues out there?
Avatar f tn Coconut oil or even virgin olive oil is great for that dry sensitive skin. The best solution to how you look during tx is to avoid mirrors. Seriously.
Avatar f tn okay i lay in the tanning bed and i get these lil white spots all over me and i dont no how to make them go away some one told me to put head and shoulder on as lotion and then wash it off when i wake up. but all it does is my my skin dry.
Avatar f tn A week ago I laid in a tanning bed for 10 minutes. I grew very hot in the bed. It did include a facial tanner, which I hadn't used in a while. Immediately upon getting out of the bed, I looked in the mirror and suddenly noticed a small circular, slightly pink, raised spot on the left tip of my nose. A week later I still have the spot, but it isn't as pink. It has never hurt or itched.
Avatar m tn Now the patches are just a dry area of pinker skin, similar to the look of eczema. I did not try tanning again this week but may try next week and see if it returns.
1116823 tn?1303072844 Hello, This dry whitish skin can be psoriasis but if it is itchy then eczema needs to be ruled out. Psoriasis is a long-term (chronic) skin problem that causes skin cells to grow too quickly, resulting in thick, white, silvery, or red patches of skin. It is thought that psoriasis occurs when the immune system overreacts, causing inflammation and flaking of skin.
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 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. I had that painful experience and so am very cautious about having the bed properly cleaned before I get in it.
Avatar n tn It is also theoretically possible you got it from the tanning bed that was not adequately cleaned between customers. I suppose it could also be a boil or something like that.
1730786 tn?1310092814 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.
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 f tn t say too much on what to do for it other than going to a tanning bed to get sun on it, and to cut my nails and to stop scratching. Can men get Lichen sclerosis? I've seen a rash on my dads chest when I was younger and he would go out in the sun and it helped to get rid of it.
Avatar f tn This might be a silly questions but I'm wondering if tanning wil help to prevent me from getting stretch marks? I know tanning has some skin benefits like with acne and eczema but what about stretch marks? I don't have a single one yet but I'm curious is moisturizing everyday and laying out in the sun or in a bed for a little will help.
