This sounds like folliculitis or a fungal infection. I would not advise you to spend so much time under the sun after this. I know this may be hard to do as it sounds like you are really excited about the trip. However, it is likely that the skin may get irritated and this may only aggravate the condition. I suggest that you wash the area with a mild cleanser such as Cetaphil. Apply thinly 0.05% Fluocinonide cream over the area once daily. Apply only on affected areas for 3 days. Do not apply for more than a week. Avoid any tanning beds and sun exposure while you are applying the cream. If this worsens the condition, cease the application and have this assessed by your doctor. Always keep the area covered and dry.
How long do you advise to stay out the sun. I am going to florida with my gf and 2 other couples...
This is quite common with waxing (it rashes and goes away).. I realize it broke out when I went tanning, but I read after your not suppose to go in sun within 24-48 hours of waxing. I put vitamin E on it, should I stop applying that and do exactly what you said. I dont technically need to go in the sun until Sunday, should I apply sun screen to the area so the sun doesn't affect the area?
Covered and dry, do you mean by a patch or something?
I heard it usually goes away within a few days so I will avoid tanning bans, can you just elaborate a bit more. Thanks.. err Im so upset cause of this!
By the way, thanks a lot for your time, I appreciate it.
