The longer we live the wiser we truly get, and if you’ve never had a heat rash (or any rash on your chest for that matter) it can be a little unnerving at first. The thing you should be aware of is that your skin is a very complex organ and it has systems designed to protect it from harm.
When you expose the skin on your chest to large amounts of friction or too much sunlight, and . . . tanning salons fall into this category, then the skin on your chest will begin to turn red and a ‘rash chest‘ will begin to form.
The feeling of a rash chest depends greatly on the person affected by it. If your skin has been sensitive in the past then it will become extremely sensitive especially with these new itchy, red bumps.
You could spend your entire life without ever once getting rash chest or you could have it every other week as it really depends on your current state of health and lifestyle. Once you have a rash chest you should get it checked by a doctor just to make sure it is not some serious condition.
