Itching and/or rashes may be linked to several unrelated causes, so it is important to get a tanning history on each customer. Some people are naturally photosensitive; that is, they may have an allergy which becomes symptomatic upon exposure to UV. Others are susceptible to heat rashes, a cause totally unrelated to UV light. Certain chemicals or ingredients found in cosmetics, lotions, shampoos, and even the acrylic cleaner may cause itching as well. Rashes caused by the products generally occur in localized areas on which the products were applied. Customers should be advised to tan with the skin as clean as possible. If discontinued use of a suspected product does not inhibit the rash, a person should discontinue any exposure to UV light until the condition subsides or see a physician. If the customer wishes to tan thereafter, his/her exposure schedule should be adjusted to shorter sessions over a longer period of time. more

Rashes or itching occurring on the body after ultraviolet light exposure are not an indication of skin disease, but of dry skin or a photosensitive reaction. They often are caused by a combination of heat from the tanning lamps, a lack of sufficient melanin in the skin being tanned and ultraviolet light. Both irritations usually subside within several days after tanning has stopped. more
