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.

Tanning Bed Rash: Small bumps can appear all over the body after tanning. However, they are more commonly found in certain areas, such as stomach, chest, back and legs which are exposed to the ultraviolet rays for a longer duration. These eruptions are often referred to as tan bed rash which may develop immediately after tanning or a few days later. They look like blisters and are red in color.
