Skin Cancer?

I have been tanning regularly in a tanning bed for the last year and a half. When in the bed, my tailbone presses against the bed, causing two small patches that do not tan (white spots). However, in the last two months, these spots have turned into leathery spots, that are red and itchy. I have ceased tanning and do not go as often. When I do not tan, the spots become less irritated and red. However, as soon as they are exposed to the sun again, they become more irritated and red. The picture included is from a day when they have been exposed to tanning.

I am in the process of scheduling an appointment with my dermatologist, but it often takes several weeks/months to get in. In the meantime, I'd like to know what this could possibly be, if anything.
