I also have larger red dry blothes apperaing on my arms and upper legs. I first noticed a patch like this on my torso....

Hi, thanks for posting your query

It does not seem to be scabies because it is associated with itching typically more at night and the bumps do not fade leaving black spots .
It may be Pityriasis rosea which is considered to be of viral etiology

But it could be even an eczematous or allergic condition.
You may visit a dermatologist for examination and appropriate diagnoisis and treatment .

Hope this helps you
