Hello all, recently, about a week-week and a half ago, I began laying out in the sun so I wouldn't burn during my beach trip. However, starting a few days ago, whenever I go out and tan I get these red bumps on my chest and near my armpit(on my arm). It isn't a sunscreen allergy and I think it is sun rash. However, when I was at practice on Monday, I was sweating and didn't get the bumps on my chest. However, maybe it was I was wearing a shirt?! Do you think the sun rash appears is because my chest is not perfectly flat so it causes the sweat to not be able to flow freely? I have been using Clean & Clear acne control moisturizer(salicylic acid .5%) to try to open the pores. I don't want to be getting these embarrassing bumps on my chest(major area) and I can't stand the itching. Any Advice? Should I just not lay flat? Maybe that is cuasing the swat to stay in the pore? I am leaving Wednesday AM but won't be on the beach until Thursday around 12 PM.View Thread
