Bumps on the legs after using sun tan cream. Cure?

Hi last summer i wore shorts, to get a tan on my legs. I put lots of SPF on yet i got a very bad heat rash. I came up in all these bumps and bubbles on tge front of my thighs. I want to get my legs out again this summer, but i dont want it to happen again! Is there anything you can recomend to stop the rash, but will let me still be able to tan?

Thanks for the query.
you are allergic to sunlight.
Please dont expose for tan,
There are high chances to get those blisters again.
Probably you can go for artificial tanning, where controlled amount of radiation is given
