11970398 tn?1443134602 I am in New York too and the first time last week I was out in the sun I got a rash on my chest!!!! I usually tan so I was freaked out... Gold bond powder worked to make it go away just don't forget spf next time!
Avatar f tn So I didnt want to risk tanning or pay the price of a spray tan so I went and bought L'oreal Sublime Bronze tinted self tanning lotion. Im super pasty and it made me super sad that I had no color. But this product is AMAZING! no streaks.
Avatar f tn Does anyone else use it?? Everywhere I've read says that the self tanning lotion is safe because it doesn't absorb into the blood stream only top layer of skin. But no no to spray and fake baking.
Avatar f tn I know tanning is bad for u in general. I have fair skin and my hubby and I are going on a vaca next month. I usually go tanning a few times so I dont get burnt. U think its ok to go a few times before we go?
525787 tn?1213756687 t harm the baby but during pregnancy your skin is more sensitive to the sun. Which means you will burn more easily. Getting burned increases YOUR chances for skin cancer. Just make sure to lather up on the sun screen.
Avatar n tn i have that problem too...but i go to tanning beds about 5 to 6 times a week. As soon as i saw the bumps on places such as my belly,back of legs and forearm (some smaller and less noticeable than others) i tell myself "thats it!,tomorrow NO TANNING"but the next day they are gone(*argh*)it's confusing and annoying.I'm glad to know that it's common for skin that is sensitive to the UV rays.
Avatar f tn t looked on the internet yet but If you could find it It will help. There was a tanning lotion that was actually for sun spots. It covered them well, Another thing was getting a mystic tan, ( a spray on tan) It may be fake but that covered some of mine. I am however going to look for that lotion again.
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 I talked to one of my friends that used to work at a tanning bed and uses the same tanning lotion as me. The same thing happened to her & said it was some kind of fungis, there was a type of lotion that you can buy to help get rid of this. I never bought the lotion but the bumps stopped coming after tanning but I still get the white spots.
Avatar f tn Is it okay to were tanning lotion as long as it have spf. In it? I'm in flordia for 2 weeks and would like to get a little color since I'm pail and aghost.
Avatar f tn just started treatment 5 days ago (it already feels like forever). I have many symptoms, but the latest and greatest is my skin is so sensitive!! I have a rash on my torso, but it's not so much itchy as incredibly sensitive. Trying to dress for work everyday is awful, does anyone have any good tips on managing this?? Is everyone else working through their treatment?
Avatar f tn With increased hormones, you can get those hormone spots on your skin. I got a huge one when I was pregnant with baby #2 on my temple. Not so sure about the tanning lotion.
Avatar f tn If you can get into a tanning bed for about 5 minutes once a week that will help clear it up or blue light therapy (which is more expensive but does the same as a tanning bed). Since your skin is rather dry try using Cetaphil lotion all over your face (the one that is for your body is richer so use that kind) or use aquephor lip balm on the dry areas (this should take care of it over a course of one or two days). I hope this helps!
Avatar n tn i went tanning and God did i get burnt.i had the chills,fever got sso red and this never happened to me before.have been tanning for years,but not once during treatment for 6 months of pegasus and riba.3 more days to go ! do you think it was a photp sensitive reaction from these meds ?
Avatar f tn No. Also, your skin is more sensitive and instead of tanning you're most likely just going to burn.
1025521 tn?1252507728 I am an RN, and I am not sure why you have a rash, but for your own safety, stay away from the tanning beds! There is a huge increase in the number of skin cancer cases from young women using tanning beds, and it just isn't worth it. Get a spray on tan; a lot of places are offering those now. I hope all works out for you.
Avatar n tn t done that in years) and almost immediately every exposed area of my skin started to itch intensely. I had to get out of the tanning bed within 5 minutes. It wasn't until a few weeks ago, at my daughter's soccer game that I experienced the same sensation; I started to itch like crazy within about 10 minutes of being in the sun, again only the exposed areas (my chest,arms, neck and face).
Avatar f tn Then when my skin gets hot the redness comes back in the same exact spots. I believe my skin is extra sensitive to the heat because if I go out in the sun and my rash is covered, it will flare up due to heat rather sun exposure. Also, the same bumps appear every time. This past vacation, my right thigh got the worst of it. My left thigh wasn't as bad and then my core and upper arms got the rash pretty bad too. It's so frustrating. Why does this happen and why now?!
Avatar f tn I say go all natural... nothing wrong with your skin tone.. tanning lotions like jergens though is safe as long as you are putting it on in a ventilated space a.d not breathing it in.... sadly ALL lotions unless organic have chemicals, tanning or moisturizing..
Avatar n tn I used Triple-Antibiotic ointment for a while and it slowly got better, then I started masturbating with eucerine lotion and it flared up and got really raw, itchy, and sensitive. In these other posts someone mentioned psoriasis, which I have had on my head and leg since a toddler. I am hoping it is and isn't that. I have a full battery of STD tests coming up which should all pass as negative since I just ended a marriage of 5 years.
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 m tn If the lotion helps, it could be eczema...which is a broad term for a skin irritation, like psoriasis. My children have eczema and when lotion wont take it away and it becomes reddened, I have to use a hydrocortisone cream. They have many brands over-the-counter, like Cortaid, that might help. Just don't use them for an extended period of time. Once the redness goes away, use an uncented lotion, like Curel intensive therapy for extra dry skin, after every shower.
