Sunburn reaction -red bumps

I took off my spandex rashguard shirt at the beach for about 30 minutes while sitting in a chair. I developed a mild sunburn on my chest which didn't seem too bad. About a week later I developed red bumps on the sunburned area which looks sort of like acne. The same thing happened last summer except even worse on my back after a sunburn. The red bumps usually appear after about a week and persist for about a month.

I've been surfing the web trying to diagnose this condition and the closest I can determine is that it's some type of Polymorpheus Light Eruption (PLE). I'm a 41 white male and until last summer I'ver never had this reaction to the sunburn before. Any information appreciated.
