Hello,

You can use tanning bed as usual. It will not worsen your disease condition and does not cause any complications. Make sure that you should not put more stress on the broken fragments.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
