How to treat a skin rash

Hi i went to my friend's swimming pool and jacuzzy 2 and a half weeks ago . When i got home after 2 hours and showered i got this rash on my knees. It was very ichy , i scrached it a little and the rash developed expending it's radius. The next day i had the rash on my shoulders and fromt of my shoulder. Those were small red bumps but kind of went away in 2 weeks. But i got the rash on my butt about a week and a half ago  , it's red itchy elevated rash. I shaved my leg right before going to the pool so i might have cut a little on my knees but i didn't see any visuble cuts. I'm very worried about the rash !! Please help me find out ehat it is and how to get rid of it.
