Random scabs on the body. Causes ?

I have random scabs on my body. I ve had four that I ve had for at least 4 to 5 moths They started out as bumps and then turned into scab looking! They don t really itch , but they do bother me cause I can think anything that would cause them. I normally wear sweaters and jeans since its cold , so I can t think of a time that my skin got in contact with something besides my shower supplies and clothes.

Thanks for the query,

Appearance of bumps on body with scab can happen even in internal disorders, like psoriasis.

It is not necessary that some thing should come in contact with body to cause skin lesion.

Apply some antibacterial cream to prevent infection.

A biopsy may be required to confirm diagnosis.

Please meet a dermatologist for final diagnosis and treatment
