Patchy itchy skin

I have dark dry patches of skin on my stomach, back and breasts. I've tried exfoliants, moisturizers etc and they don't seem to work. What is this? Am I lacking some type of vitamin or mineral or something. I've had this on and off for a few years and sometimes it almost disappears and sometimes it's almost unbearably itchy. Is there a medicated moisturizer or something I can try or a supplement? I don't do drug medication.

Aveeno is a good recommendation.  hard to say w/ out seeing it and not knowing your history but sounds a lil like eczema.  My son has that and the baby aveeno works great.  He gets patches at weird times.  Usually when it is dry out or he comes down with a cold.  if that doesn't help you should see a dermatologist if it bothers you that much.
