Sores on upper back, arms and shoulders, bleeding on scratching, white scars. History of dry skin. Hives?

For the past year I have had these small itchy sores appearing on my upper body and back, arms and shoulders. When I scratch them they bleed and I now have small white scars there they were all over my arms!! I do have dry skin and been using Aveeno lotion which relieves the itching somewhat but what else could cause something like this? Hives maybe??
