It sounds like your describing carp pox, if so its nothing really to worry about. I have it on some of my younger Koi, now the temps are warming it it will fade away.

I agree and if you want to know more about carp pox, why it appears when the water is cold, why it disappears as the water warms and why it seems to lessen as the koi grows then you can read about it on my website on this link:
