Patient : I have a few bumps near my anus that itch really bad at times, and i've noticed it's after I tan in a tanning bed. I work at the tanning salon so I make sure to sanitize the bed really well, and I've been tanning for years so I know it has nothing to do with that. The bumps itch REALLY bad after I tan and then seem to be calmed down by the next morning. They are small red patches that feel dry rough. I thought at first that it may be herpes just because I always think the worst, but I've had these for a couple weeks and they haven't itched constantly or turned to blisters. What do you think it is? I'm really scared!
