round rough patches of skin

I have a question and I am not for sure if I should go to a doctor or not. I use the tanning bed on a regular basis. The last time I went to the tanning bed, I started getting these rough round patches of hard dry skin on my body. I have one on my wrist, 4 on my stomache, and one on my butt. The one on my butt is starting to get larger. I am not for sure what has caused them. I have looked at pictures of skin cancer, excema, and psoriasis but none of the pictures resemble what I have. It's almost like a callus. Is this normal? Should I be worried? Should I go to a doctor? They don't bother me, besides my appearance. I have stopped using the tanning bed for about a month now. Please let me know what you think. Thank you
