Sometimes i get little dry spots on the side of my breasts & thigh here & there. Why is this? Ik I have dry skin i keep it moisturized
Eczema: Eczema or contact dermatitis. If the spots are where some article of clothing rubs then that could be the cause. If not, then use Hydrocortisone 1% cream three times a day on the dry spots as needed. If you moisturize with a lotion twice a day all over, then advance to a cream twice a day or an ointment like, vaseline or aquaphor. That is just the way eczema acts. ...Read more

I have this dry skin problem for a few years and now i'm just getting irritated by it. Dry spots on my chest and i keep bleeding from my back.
Are you certain it: is only dry skin? What have you received in terms of treatment? If you have not visited a family physician or dermatologist, I would urge you to give it a try. If you already have, then perhaps go back and see if he/she can suggest an alternative method of treatment. Sometimes trial and error works best for skin conditions.

I have spots on the insides of my thighs that itch like crazy! is it dry skin or could it be linked to my candida overgrowth? (i'm about 95% paleo)
See a dermatologist: Why candida overgrowth? There is always a reason. Beware of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) as it is a sleeping pill and will not reduce your itch. Claims for "paleo" diet do not make sense to scientists or physicians. You may have a type of intertrigo. Are you very heavy? ...Read more
