What Is Going On With My Back? (Photo)

I've been dealing with some sort of issue with my back for about 6-7 years. I get red spots and whiteheads on my back (mostly shoulders and middle of my spine -- forms a "cape" almost). Some of them are large, painful, and itchy. I think I have some scarring from busting those infected bits open when a head appeared. Whatever it is, it does not respond to acne treatments and it heals VERY slowly. Sometimes it's manageable, other times It flares up...especially after I lift weights.

Based on some reading I think I may have folliculitis? I do not think it's food related as I've tried cutting out dairy. Can anyone give me some direction?

Other background info that might be relevant: 27 years old, eat a clean diet 95% of the time, tried all the usual acne stuff for years (BP/SA/AHA). Didn't work. I don't have this problem on my face, but sometimes i'll get a couple spots on my chest.
