There are a number: of infectious and parasitic disorders that could present with these findings. This will not be able to be evaluated over the internet. You need to see a health care provider (probably best to see a dermatologist) for appropriate evaluation and treatment.

Red bumps: The red bumps may be hives brought on by the tanning bed. Take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for your itching and consult your doctor for more help.
