Red face Red Spots All Over My Body!

Recently I have noticed tiny red spots all over my body. I have never had or seen anything like this before on my skin. They vary in size from a pin ***** to half a dime. They are red and a little rough and dry. They began appearing sometime when I started going swimming. At first I thought they were from my new bathing suit, but then I starting getting them in places when my bathing suit does not cover. The only thing I have been doing different since these showed up was laying out in the sun and swimming.

I thought of other possabilites, maybe new lotions, shower gels, clothes, but its none of them.

I dont know if its from the sun or maybe im allergic to the chlorine? All I know is that everytime i go out to the pool, i get more of them, and they dont go away.

I was wondering if anyone knows wha this is, what its caused by, and how to make it go away. Please help!

I'd say it's obviously caused by the water in the pool. Perhaps it's the cholorine, but more likely the water isn't in 'good' shape and has a parasite or something in it. Go see your doctor..you'll most likely need a cortisone cream to apply to those spots to get rid of them.
