Hi. I have a single dry small dry patch on my shoulder . it s not red or anything. I had a dark dry patch under my arm for like a year. I thought i just needed to scrub that area better. I just noticed i have brown long streak going across that same dark spot.They almost look like scabs to me. The skin is breaking. What is it?
