Red Fluffly Spots

I have these horrible looking white-ish and reddish spots on the upper half of my back. It started all the way back in 2005 after i swam in a public swimming pool. And all of a sudden it has increased to spread on my upper arm, front upper portion near the neck and face. Please help urgently. They were all flat, now they just suddenly fluffed up and are itchy. Please help.
