    i've layed in tanning beds on numerous occassions...well, i just started at this new place with nice, brand new beds...i went three days in a row 15min each time...i really didn't notice a huge difference..well, on the third day i started to itch severely, and i still am right now! my back, stomach, arms, ass...i'm not even burned! the only thing i could think of was the celebrex i'm taking for my shoulder may have caused some wierd reaction..any suggestions of what the cause could be and how can i stop this itching, it's reallt uncomfortable...last night i ate: 4 tylenol max strenghts, 4 advils, 1 Fiorecet pain killer, 1 Deseryl tab (anti-anxiety), and i still couldn't sleep!

    your skin is way over dried. Get some lotion and lather you body in it once every 15 minutes for the next hour...watch the itch go away...

    Ask the tanning place for a list of medications that increase photo-sensitivity. By the way, you're not supposed to mix acetaminophen and ibuprofen.

    Don't even get me started on tanning beds.
    Try rubbing aloe lotion on yourself. That might help
    I got those spots all over me. I'm going to the Dr. to get those pills to get rid of em on Fri.
    Did anyone else ever get cursed w/ this "White spot" thing?

    There is nothing worse than what you are experiencing. The key, and this is too late for you, is to take it much slower than you did. I am guessing you just started tanning again after the summer? Your skin may have been tan from the sun but it is not used to the tanning bed lamps. I have learned to start slow, real slow to start. Like 5 minutes the first few times and certainly not everyday. No itch for me.

    The same thing happened to me months ago. I have never been that itchy in my life. It was so bad that it would take me 2 hours to fall asleep. Get some lotion that should help and a back scratcher. Good luck!

    From what ppl are telling me the white spots come from some kind of fungus that ppl get when they lay in dirty beds. It attacks the pigment in your skin and gives you white dots all over the place. I don't know if it's true or not but I have a appt w/ the Dr. on Fri to find out.
    It really looks bad like though.
    I'll pm you bigr and let u know what he says...

    Those spots come from Tinea Versicolor. It is caused by a fungus, but not from dirty beds, everybody has this fungus. It just doesn't affect some people's pigment.

    Use aloe lotion to get rid of the dry skin. Benadryl creme or pills will get rid of the itchiness in an hour or two.

    There is a shampoo you can use for the Tinea Versicolor, unfortunately I cant think of the name right now, but if you go to a dermatologist he/she should perscribe it to you! (i will look it up for you)
    Use it faithfully and your spots should go away!

    Anything with selenium sulfide will make tinea versicolor go away. The prescription is a lot stronger than anything you can buy otc. Selsun Blue has it in it.

    Ask the Dr. for the pills, they work much better, plus it is hard to get the shampoo allover without help.

    The tanning place should also carry some kind of lotion to use after you use your tanning bed lotion try that after you take a shower. It's usually the 3rd "phase" to their lotions.

    Ive always had dry skin and going to the suntan bed makes it 10 times worse. Sometime it will itch non stop for about hour and half.

    Next time your skin is acting up, do not use any lotion with retinol in it. This is a mild version of vitamin a, which slowly exfoliates(peels) your skin. Use benedryl, gold bond powder or even just aloe right away.

    The itching you notice may be caused by too much UV light exposure. Your skin also could be sensitive to chemicals used to clean tanning beds or ingredients in cosmetics or lotions. You might try a self tanner instead of going to the tanning bed.

    I always use the stand up tanning booth.To lie in a pool of sweat ,and heat is asking for a rash or a fungus.
    Start off with 8 to 10 minutes if you are starting out.My 2c

    Interesting so you think it's histamine related?

    The first generation oral anti-histamines generally work much better as you have mentioned

    Bro, For the white spots, go and get Selsum (brown bottle where i come from) from the chemist. It has selenium sulfide. I use it. It can be used for dandruff, but its good for your skin too. I find if i put it on after a shower with damp skin then let it dry, it works better. Make sue you wash it off after it dries. Use for 1 week every night. then about 6 weeks later repeat. then you can used like once a fortnight and it shold never be a prob again.

    Or, there is a product I think its called Pevaryl, its got econazole nitrate in it. This works too but you leave it on overnight. 3 sachets in a box, but not as cheap as the Selsum.

    Possibly the tanning place didnt use UV safe cleaning supplies. Which would explain the skin irritation.
