Itchy scaly spots that won't go away

Can anyone help me? I have these spots all over that are itchy sometimes but not all the time. The are scaly I guess you could say. It started with one but now they are everywhere. And sometimes they are slightly open spots. My mom says they are eczema but I'm not sure. They just seemed to have popped up too fast. Any suggestions.

Re: Itchy scaly spots that won't go away

You didn't say where. Legs, arms, face, or I assume everywhere means everywhere!
I get a few patches on my legs during the winter. Red, itchy, dry, scaly. Sometimes I will scratch until it bleeds though that is not what you should do. Sounds like eczema or psoriasis. A doctor can prescribe a cream to help with the itching (I had some) but didn't find it helped anymore than an OTC anti itch cream.
Limit showers/baths and try not to use too hot of water.
Moisturize!! I like the gold bond medicated powder too for the itching.

Will the gold bond medicated lotion work the same?
