Dry spots on stomach, back, and breasts!!!

5808325?1276845096
The day after I attended a pool party, I noticed these dry, itchy patches that were on my arms. They were mainly concentrated around my shoulders and under arms. There were tiny goosebump-like bumps along the underside of my arms. I scratched a dry spot around my shoulder thinking it was just really dry skin, but it turned red and scarred.

Since then, I think they have spread to my back. One morning I woke up to find a bunch of smaller patches all over my stomach and breasts.

These are VERY itchy!!!

I have been applying olive oil to these spots about twice a day. My arms seemed to have improve a little bit, but my stomach still has many of these spots.

I am worried, because while I have always had dry skin, this has never happened before. Could I possibly have eczema? What can I do to treat this?
