Is indoor tanning safe if you have a known medical condition?

Tanning with a Known Medical Condition

Many people with certain medical conditions can tan indoors safely. However, it is not recommended for people with medical conditions that are affected by UV rays or sunlight.

If you have a known medical condition and wish to begin tanning using either a home tanning bed, tanning lamp, or at tanning salons, consult your doctor. Make sure that your condition or the medications are safe for being under the sun or UV rays. A doctor may even encourage getting regular sun or tanning in a tanning bed for some conditions.

Some medications for conditions may contain a photosensitizing agent. If this is the case, you should avoid sunlight or tanning.
