Itchy swollen ashes on the breasts and buttocks after tanning.Are these symptoms of herpes?

HI i got a serious rash between my breasts and on my buttocks after i tanned on a liying down tanning bed . the rash is something i have never experienced or seen, the rash was wide and swelled up and extremely itchy. a week later i got my first herpes blisters on my buttocks. i have heard of people getting funny viruses and deseases from tanning on unclean sunbeds. Is this possible that this caused the herpes i have now? as i never had these ever until after the rash.

based in the locations and timing of the rashes that you have, I don't think it is at all likely that you have herpes. it is much more likely that the rash is due to yeast, or due to a reaction to some some substance that irritated your skin or that you may have had a reaction to. that could have been some sort I cleaning detergent or maybe a perfume or body cream that someone else used before you used the bed if it wasn't cleaned properly. if the rash persists, you should see your doctor and he/she can probably figure out what it is by examining it. I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any more questions.
