Re: Red bumps after tanning?
OK...so no replies yet. Anyway, this time around the bumps have not gone away. I still have them and they have spread. Since they are so itchy I thought maybe it could be poison ivy - but I now know it is not. The bumps are a little big for ivy and when I get it, it spreads extremely fast all over my body and I swell up like a balloon and require medical attention (I have a severe allergy to poison ivy and the like). I've heard that this could be from too much UV exposure too fast, but I have only spent a total of 27 minutes in the tanning bed in just over a week. I also heard that someone who used the bed before me could have used 'tingle factor' and then empolyees may not have cleaned the bed well - giving me an allergic reaction. Then I was told I could be allergic to the bronzer I used on my 3rd visit. I'm soooo confused and sooo itchy!!! If anyone has any ideas to help me out I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
