I have red dots on my skin after some bad sun burn but they don't look bad, I've never been in a tanning bed, could they be dangerous?

Used sunbed 5 times and 6 days later I ve been having a sunburned feeling on back but it wasn't and isn't red! Mostly when I lay down or put on clothes?
Tanning damage: The damage can be in deeper layers of tissue where you would not see the red on the surface. This is but one of the dangers of tanning beds because you don't know you've had this type of damage before you actually feel it. At this point, the damage is done. Use lots of moisturizers, cool compresses or showers on area and oral pain medication as needed until things heal. STOP killing your skin! ...Read more
Small bumps on my chest where I got burnt from tanning bed. They came after I peeled a little but they aren't red and they don't hurt or itch?
Sorry to hear: You overdid it at the tanning salon. As you know, this increases your risk for future skin cancer. Very likely the "burn" caused some inflammation in your skin; if bacteria from skin contact with surface should be red. It sounds like it is very mild as there is no redness or itching. Put some OTC cortisone cream on the bumps; they should resolve in a few days. Please reconsider/avoid tanning beds:) ...Read more

It sounds like you got burned from the bed. Cool water. ...Read more

If it is near the edge it is probably not serious but does require treatment to prevent it from getting serious. If it is near the center, it is serious and could affect your vision. Leave your contact out and see an ophthalmologist ASAP. ...Read more
