Our expert says:
It seems as if you are allergic to one of the ingredients - what I would suggest is that you test a few brands on the inside of your arm ( ask your pharmacist if she will be willing to let you sample a few) to try and determine which one will work for you.
Some people use canthaxantin containing tablets, but one needs about half the dosage recommended on the bottle as there is some evidence that high intakes of the substance leads to pigment deposition on the retina and can cause reversable eye damage. This deposition is believed to deplete once exposure to high levels of canthaxanthin has ended. The FDA has not approved canthaxantin in the dosages that the most tanning pills contain. It can also make you look "yellow" if you take too high a dosage and there is some risk in taking this. See http://www.drugs.com/npp/tanning-tablets.html
I would not recommend a sunbed or sun tanning as fair skinned people have the risk of developing skincancer from sunburn.
