Grey crusty itchy moulds on back, tiny ones on arm and forehead

I have had a couple of gray crusty moles on my back for some time. When I shower, I am able to scratch off some of the crust. One itches sometimes since it is in the area of my bra. What could it be? I have notices just recently that I have several more tiny ones - one on my arm and one very tiny one on my forehead .

Welcome to health care magic.
Moles are pigmented lesions of the skin which are painless without itching and without any other symptoms.
If a mole is painful, has become itchy or increases in the size there is a reason to consult a local physician because there may be cancerous changes in this.
If the mole has started recently with the itchy problem then it may be an infection or dermatitis rather than mole.
You should rather consult a local dermatologist
to get correct diagnosis and treat the skin lesions according to diagnosis.
I hope the advice will be helpful for you.
