Question Tanning bumps!

When I tan I get these bumps and they itch like crazy! I dont really know what they are. I get them on my heels and sometimes on my elbows. Right now I have a little patch of bumps on my right calf. If anyone could explain to me what these are I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks

Re: Tanning bumps!

You might want to get that looked at. We are not doctors. The salon owners on this site can tell you how to get a great looking tan or how to fix streaking caused by a bronzer. Again we are not doctors and you may want get that looked at.

Re: Tanning bumps!

like totaleclipse said, you more than likely have a heat rash and if you have sensitive skin the bronzer could be irritating your skin also. Ask your salon if they have a hypoallergenic lotion and this may help.

Re: Tanning bumps!

Do they happen all the time or just when you use a lotion with a bronzer? You could just be alergic to the DHA in the bronzer. That is the reaction you get with a DHA alergy and yes it can happen in patches. try a lotion without a brozer next time and see.
