A WOMAN is encouraging others to stop using sunbeds after she was left with a severe rash all over her body.
The sunbed user shared a short video to TikTok where she warns: “Your sign to never get a sunbed.”
Been three weeks and spreads more every day.”
In the shocking clip, she can be seen covered head to toe in a red, bumpy rash.
“It’s so itchy and can’t stop itching,” she explains. “I’m on steroid tablets atm which is calming down the redness it doesn’t look as angry.”
And many social media users were left horrified by the social media post.
“Now I’m scared for life,” admitted one.
A second penned: “Was lit going to one today but this has put me off hope you get better.”
The TikTok user responded: “This come on randomly out of no where, honestly not worth it!!! It’s not just how it looks it’s so painful.”
Another who experienced a similar reaction to a sunbed recalled: “Took me over a year for mine to disappear and back to normal, was nothing more painful.”
Meanwhile, others had their own theories on what the rash could be.
“Are you sure this isn’t guttate psoriasis?” commented one. “Mine looks exactly like this and the doctors had no idea what it was until now.”
A second similarly penned: “After I got sunburnt it triggered guttate psoriasis that looked similar to this.”
A third commented: “My friend gets this, it was from a cream she was using with the sunbed that reacted and she was allergic to. I get it in the sun if I use a cheap oil.”
The former sunbed user replied: “I always used the same sunbed cream and had never had a reaction to it before.”
