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 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 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 n tn I tanned outside all the time and never got these little round white spots until after a month of tanning in a tanning bed. I don't think it might be skin pigment because I have always tanned evenly when tanning outside in the natural sun. It might be a fungus, but like I said, the spots are almost gone after about two months.
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 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. You need the help of undamaged skin more when you're 39 than you need tan skin at 19.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn ' 'Sun tan - The increase in skin pigment, called melanin, which causes the tan color change in your skin is a sign of damage.' 'Sometimes referred to as “photoaging,” premature aging is the result of unprotected UV exposure. It takes the form of leathery, wrinkled skin, and dark spots.' 'There are two main types of skin cancer:Melanoma, Non-melanoma' 'Actinic or solar keratoses, is a concern because it can progress into cancer.
2102940 tn?1333646702 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 m tn I have had this itching crawling sensation since 2000, when I use to use a tanning bed. It starts in mid summer and progressingly gets worse as the warmer month come. It happens when I get wet, work out, sweat, just lying in bed to name a few. It lasts anywhere from 10 - 30 minutes and is so extreme that i can't focus on any thing else and I do with all my power not to scratch cause that only makes it last longer and the sensation worse.
Avatar m tn My husband age 59 has been experiencing burning, prickly itchy skin at random times but mostly during the evening. He has the sensation of pins and needles pricking his skin from the inside out. This mostly occurs on his arms or legs or back, but not concurrently. First it was his legs then it moved to his back and currently the problem is on his arms. The sensation will be symetrical, i.e. both arms. The prickling turns into severe itching with sensations of pin pricking pain.
Avatar f tn I have the exact same symptoms as well. Very itchy and skin is bruising prob. from scratching it so much. I soaked in the hottest bath imaginable for it on my feet and it relieved it for hours, but yet it still does not explain what this is caused from or how to prevent it. I don't have any faith in doctors or hospitals anymore because honestly they all depend on the net too much for prognosis/diagnoses whatever!
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 n tn Perhaps you should just give up on the tanning bed. A rash is far better than skin cancer.
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 f tn As of this year I have been in the sun and have experience nothing. I was wonder if I spent some time in a tanning bed would I break out in the red bumps like the sun exposure? Not that I am interested in tanning I am just curious if it would have the same effect as the sun on my skin? thanks!
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.
Avatar n tn I enjoy tanning in a tanning bed, but I need to know if it tanning in a tanning bed, the lotion or my skin pigment that is doing this. I have simi-dark skin to begin with. Please help! I am not uncomfortable, it is just visually annoying. Thank you.
Avatar f tn My dermotologist said that I should use the tanning bed it would help. I don't think it does. I can't be out in the sun for a very long time. I'm so tired of people saying, "just stop scratching." I wish I could. I was happy to hear I'm not the only one up at night going crazy. This discussion is related to <a href=''>Severe Itching on arms</a>.
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.
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 I did however go tanning in a stand up tanning bed a few weeks ago These rashes are still spreading and I feel the doctor was incorrect as to what it is and if it could be something serious. The areas are also itchy before and after they appear. Someone please help i am becoming very concerned. I do also have pictures of these areas.
Avatar n tn , by any coarse or pilled materials chafing against the skin including bed sheets, particularly flanellette sheets, trousers, skirts etc that are not rinsed sufficiently; more radiant heat. CAR RADIATORS HEATING LEGS have to be a major cause here, so I turn my heater onto the windscreen only. The sun, floor-standing ovens, all floor level fires, radiators etc can contribute to cause and aggravation I guess.
Avatar n tn My skin - mostly my legs have been itching the past two days. There are small bumps. But not always. It seems to happen mostly in the afternoon or evening. I took a bath when I got home today and they got very bad. Any suggestions??
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.
Avatar n tn Hi: I know itchy skin doesn't sound like a big problem, but my legs and arms itch like they were about to fall off everytime I take a shower. I don't have dry skin and I use Aveeno body lotion everyday to make sure I get enough moisture. The itching is like an intense tingling only on my arms and legs (mostly on my legs) and it's so bad that sometimes I just want to run yelling into the street.
