Welcome to healthcare magic.
Dark dry patches over the back could be pityriasis versicolor. It is caused by a fungus which also causes dandruff. An antifungal cream containing ketoconazole 2% will help. Acne like bumps on your shoulder and chest could very well be acne( truncal acne). Stress and pepsi can worsen acne.
Hope this helped.
