In brief: Sunburn
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.
