911Doctor :

do you have or can you get some aloe cream or gel? it's over the counter at the pharmacy.

911Doctor :

also, plain benadryl can help with the itch though it may make you sleepy.

911Doctor :

this should only last a day or so.

911Doctor :

standing by

911Doctor :

probably just a little UV ray burn from the tanning....

911Doctor :

Customer:

I tanned on Friday and still have the bumps and itchy hands

911Doctor :

hmmm

911Doctor :

is this on the palms or the back of the hands?

Customer:

the back

911Doctor :

okay

911Doctor :

and nothing like this anywhere else?

Customer:

correct

911Doctor :

there is something called dishydrosis... a form of eczema, and this sounds very much like what you are describing.... in this case i would recommend over the counter hydrocortisone cream to the area three times a day, and the benadryl for itching.... try not to scratch.

911Doctor :

if this does not clear it up in a day or two i would be surprised.

911Doctor :

standing by

Customer:

can it come just like that? I tanned in the past never had it yet. Also I was only tanning for an hour

911Doctor :

I'm not sure that this is related to the tanning... and yes, it can come up like that.

Customer:

thank you
