After reading everyone's super helpful advice on here.. I decided that I would opt to try going into a tanning booth. I went in for only 6 minutes.. and later that evening I was having SEVERE itching, to the point where I was sobbing in discomfort. I ended up finding a doctor who prescribed me some topical steroids and hydro-cortisone as well as a strong allergy pill (one that i happened to take back when I got a bought of weird hives for 9 months haha). These medications have REALLY helped. I am just wondering though, if anyone else who tried tanning had this issue with it?
