Rep Power: 0 eskimopie is on a distinguished road
Recently I started to tan again. I have tanned off and on for years.

Well I started using CFX and I get these itchy bumps on my arms mainly. Could I be allergic to something in the lotion or is it heat rash? please someone help me!

You may be sensitive to UV, especially if you haven't been exposed in a long time. Are you taking any medications that could make you sensitive to UV? Do not tan again until the bumps go away, then try tanning once without lotion for a short exposure time. If rash develops again, it's probably the UV. If not, continue to tan every other day for short exposure times and you should get over the sensitivity. Use lotion (no tingle) and STAY TAN to keep this from happening again.

I would suggest just using a strictly high pressured bed 1x per week for a short session, just to build up your tolerance

Are we taking inner arms - or not?

is it only on the arms (not behind the knees or bikini area)?

What type of bed did you use (what is the maximum exposure time allowed) and how long did you go?

Have you tried tanning without THAT lotion?

More than likely - - - if this is not an allergic reaction to the lotion, it's simply heat rash.... Hot Spots for sensitive skin is inner arms, thighs/bikini area, neck and back of knees.....

If it's HEAT that's bugging you - - -stay the **** out of HP .... stick with lowpressure 100 watts and go slowly.

HOnesty it might be the CFX. I gave my mom a sample of the CFX and she already had a great tan and she broke out just as you did with itching all over. I have another client have the same problem with CFX. Personaly I would try a different lotion to see if that would clear it up.

If you like the CFX try Fiji's Electra!
