Still can't see your picture any level of ammonia is toxic to fish what I would do is test daily any time you see ammonia do a large water change and add a double dose of prime or Fritz complete to help detoxify any ammonia till it constantly stays at zero this could be the cause of what your seeing

It could definitely be making it more noticeable, but it has been an issue long before an ammonia spike. They don't look like ich spots, more raised bumps slightly larger than ich that are a similar color to the fish and they are mostly on the tail. 

You can get raised white spots or lumps  on the fin rays of goldfish when they facture a fin ray and you get  a proliferation of  fibrous tissue to help stabilise the break causing these white lumps it's very common in long fined goldfish and nothing to worry about ich is flat white spots that look like a sinking of salt on the fins and and body
