Scabs on legs, large rashes on arms and legs in the summer. Cause of worry?

Alright, I seem to have a minor skin complaint. You see, Ive been getting these scabs on my legs from time to time that tend to come and vanish within 3-4 days, there hasn t been very much in the way of severe itching but I did have a huge rash on both my arms and legs last summer and Im just wondering if its something I should worry about?
