Itchy skin

For the past 5 years i have had this problem (ish). Whenever my body is wet; after a shower or being in the sea or sweating, i get raised red spots on my back and chest. The are itchy but then disappear after an hour. But it's consistent. Does anyone know what this is. It doesn't annoy me and i'm used to it now but was just curious to see what it is.
