1025521 tn?1252507728 I recentley startes tanning in a tanning bed, approxamately a couple weeks after I started a rash started below my knees and down my shins. I tanned last summer as well and the same thing but not as bad. The rash begins as little red spots, but this time it has got a little worse. They are irregular shaped red spots or welts/ blemishes, slightly poofy and raised but not extremely.
2102940 tn?1333643102 I've been tanning for prom and after tanning in a bronzing bed several hours later I started hurting on my side. I looked at my side and notice a red rash or burn spot the size of a baseball. It was painful not itchy but hurt. I took some IB for pain and put some cream on the area for the inflammation and went to bed. Got up this morning and the pain has stopped and the spot is all red. Doesn't itch or hurt it's just on my skin and ugly.
Avatar f tn I just started laying in the tanning bed and i have developed a rash on my butt its about as big as a dime and has lil blisters in it. The past two years that i have tanned i have got it and it will stay for about a week and then go away and not come back un til next year when i start tanning. What is it and how can i stop it from coming back?
Avatar m tn I stopped going to the tanning bed, and I applied hydrocortisone cream by Aveeno. I just never risked going back in the tanning bed after this. However, I have still tanned outside, directly in the sun...and there have been no issues. Thanks for your help!
Avatar n tn I started using cortisone cream thinking it was ecezema along wit another cream fluocinide. Well after a couple days my face turned bright red on both cheeks n nose like a butterfly rash now i dont no if this was cuz of the creams i put on? but they did burn at 1 point on my face i thought that was the proccess.MY face woudl get redder after sweating hott showers and heat.
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..
Avatar n tn i got my chest waxed from my gf and there was a bit of a rash but nothing crazy. i went tanning the next day and I broke out really bad. the day after (today) its seemed to have went down a lot but still looks irratated and looks like there is white heads on some of them. I read you can't be in the sun after waxing because it irratates skin etc.

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 n tn 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. They went from red/purplish, to dark purple, to dark brown, and now they look like they are fading (currently light brown). I am assuming they will disappear as the ones on the tops of my hands have in the past.
Avatar m tn Thanks for the help. The hives or rash went away a few days after tanning. 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.
Avatar f tn Is it all because of the one time I went tanning before I got married? Is it PMLE or just a heat rash? Furthermore, while on vacation my rash won't show up until about the 3rd or 4th day into my vacation and then it covers my whole body. Why do you think this is? Side Note: I'm an spf nazi and cake 30-50 on at all times. I love swimming and vacationing, but the thought of going makes me depressed due to my ugly rash.

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 I made the mistake of going to the beach on a cloudy winter day (live in fla) had on my spf 50 and got the worst rash and i can say that was really the only time I had a rash and it never really went away. Now after being done with treatment I have returned to the beach and spf 50 still and getting burnt which I has never happened to me before treatment. So be VERY cautious i would say go with the shadey side of the pool.........
Avatar f tn Like most so glad to hear that I am not the only person. Although it said to hear no Dr has a good answer. I've had this problem for 4 years now. I first got this when I was at New York city on a school trip i just shaved my legs got out of the tub dried them with a towel and BAM i started icing like crazy this was in MARCH. Then I was getting tanned for a school dance and it happened again and this was in February of the next year.
Avatar f tn The next day or the day after, I went to the gym and after my workout used the stand up tanning bed. I noticed in the bed these spots under the UV lighting, what looked like a red rash and thought it had something to do with the heat from laser + tanning. Unfortunately, these spots are now visible around my bikini area and lower navel area (also treated with laser hair removal). They are a tan color and when I shower, they get darker.
Avatar n tn I had it before. Somebody told me to go to the tanning bed a few times and it will go away. I am so against tanning beds now because I had to have 2 skin biopsies (both benign) which put a scare in me. I used to worship the sun and went to the tanning bed for special occasions. I will say though it did work and got rid of the rash.
Avatar f tn The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and sometimes by itching. Rash of pityriasis is usually harmless and goes away on its own.In some cases of uncontrollable itching,oral and local steroids can be used. I feel that you should get it evaluated from a dermatologist. Treatment can be started only after confirmation of diagnosis. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.
Avatar f tn The one on my heel and other one on my chest are UNRELATED. The one on my chest usually occurs after i lay in the tanning bed. Could it be from heat? It itches and spreads when i scratch it.Any suggestions will help.Thanks.
Avatar m tn ve been dating for three months (unprotected). Two days later, and after my tanning experience, I got out of the shower and masterbated. After I was done, I had a felt a irritation on my penis, the "fricition" like feeling, and it became inflamed, red and somewhat sore. It wasn't a severe pain by any means, nor did I notice any irritation (bumps, sorenes, etc...) previously to masterbating and I didnt have any other symptoms.
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 f tn 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 did go and use a tanning salon last week but i did not burn anywhere after i had finished. im not sure if this is related to the tanning salon or not but i am thining it is some sort of heat rash. what could i use to make this go away?
