Hi red bumps associated with tanning can be features of photoburn and solar is due to excessive work in the sun.
Avoid excessive sunexposure by wearing hats.using umbrallas and using food like carrot.tomato.cucumber which has excessive antioxidants to protect from sun.
Use a sunscreen of spf more than 50 in the
Morning and moisteriser along with demyelinating agent in the night over the tanned areas.use antihistamine to treat red bumps
