I gotta agree with Lotiongirl on this one..... it is hard to give advice (and it WAS asked for) or an opinion (which is why online exists) without all the FACTS.

If as a salon owner - you have never had an experience with this.... you are ALWAYS safer to advise the client to seek the advice of her physician.... Had you mentioned this in post one ~ there would have been no confusion.

The type of rash you describe sounds like typical 'prickly heat'.... heat rash. Not unusual for fair people to experience the first few exposures to natural or artifical sunlight. The body 'gets used to the heat' and no problems....

Okay, my customer went to her doctor and he said it was "Prickly Heat". The doctor sent the following information for me to read. I thought I would post it here on TanTalk.
________________________________________ _______________________________________
Prickly heat (miliaria rubra) is a type of heat rash that lasts for several days or even weeks without proper care. Here the pores of the sweat glands get plugged, resulting in tiny pink bumps or even water blisters. These bumps tend to show up on covered parts of the skin, especially where there is friction from clothing. The forehead (under caps or visors), body folds, the upper back and chest, and the arms and legs are the most common locations. Prickly heat is most common when it is hot and humid, but it can also occur in overdressed infants even during the winter. Applying oils and ointments makes prickly heat more likely (and take longer to clear up). Often prickly heat itches, and will be describe a 'prickly' sensation. The rash can look quite similar to one caused by infected hair follicles (folliculitis), but if you look at the prickly heat bumps with a magnifying glass, no hair follicles will be seen.

Prickly heat is treated with gentle cleansing of the skin. Using Stri-Dex Acne Medicated Sensitive Skin Pads; the salicylic acid helps to unplug the pores. Hydrocortisone cream (not ointment) can help with itching. Sometimes antihistamines are needed for the itching (and sleep). If the rash is infected, antibiotics may also be needed. With treatment, prickly heat should disappear within 2 or 3 days. An important note: Tanning can produce prickly heat. The client should be advised NOT to use and oils or moisturizers until the rash clears.

What it wasn't stress? I thought with the episode of the Simpsons in which Homer starting popping large "welts" and turned into the hulk backed up that statement.

I have a client that has little tiny white bumps on the top of her feet and they do itch. That is the only place she has them. Kinda sounds like prickly heat, but they are not pink. She is planning on going to see her doctor. She does tan once or twice a week, so I don't personally think she is over doing it.

I have tiny white bumps too! They are on my stomach and upper thigh, but I quit going to the tanning beds like a month ago. Now I just tan outside. I still have them and have no idea how to get rid of it!!!! I haven't used anything different in the past few months.

I have been tanning before and it has never happened and when I was going to the tanning beds it didnt appear. As soon as the Summer started the just started apearing. I guess it is just from too much exposure to the rays or something or maybe a allergic reaction.

I would pay for a visit to YOUR personal doctor to have the bumps checked out. You really never know who you are dealing with until you are in fact dealing with them. That is of course if she is implying that she is getting the bumps from your salon.
Just my suggestion if you in fact going to send her to the doctor. If she thinks these bumps are a direct result from your salon then send her.
