Itchy peeling skin from tanning bed possible?

Sunburn

Tanning
If you are using a tanning bed and are getting the symptoms you describe then this is probably a sunburn, plain and simple. Of course,as a dermatologist, I would recommend against tanning beds. If you are getting these symptoms then you are basically burning your skin just as if you were being exposed to sunlight.

How to treat this super itchy sunburn from tanning bed?

OH YES!

Itching
TANNING BEDS ARE DANGEROUS! Keep sunburn cool with moist cool/cold compresses. Avoid alcohol containing products. Break off pieces of aloe vera plant & apply sap to skin. Consider non-steroidal anti-inflammatory meds to reduce pain. Don’t yank off peeling skin or burst blisters. Seek medical care for severe pain, fever, lack of improvement of sxs within several days.

You may have come in contact with a certain type of fungus. Fungus thrives in warm and wet environments and can be passed from person to person. Try over the counter anti-fungals such as lotrimin. If no relief, contact a podiatrist or dermatologist.

I've been tanning in a tanning bed and have developed a an itchy, painful rash on my stomach. What could it be?

Probable infection

Tanning
Both the ultraviolet light which decreases your skins ability to fight infection and the possibility of an infectioin acquired on a surface not sterilized before your use are common causes. You could have activated a virus like HSV or Zoster as well. See your Dermatologist.

I go tanning in a bed noticed two white patches size of a penny near my elbow had them for a few months not itchy what is this?

Tinea Versicolor

Elbow_pain_
Consult A dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. My guess is Tinea versicolor also called pityriasis versicolor, is a common fungal infection of the skin. The fungus interferes with the normal pigmentation of the skin, resulting in small, discolored patches. TInea versicolor usually respond and can be treated with topical antifungal creams.

Why would it be that my skin is so itchy after tanning?

Usually dryness

Tanning
Remember that tanning is trauma to the skin and not helpful! It damages the epidermis and causes damage to the collagen in the dermis. It also dries the skin and the peeling is the dead epidermal cells coming off the stratum corneum.
