In brief: Eczema?

It is tough to tell just from your description exactly what these spots could be due to without a physical exam or picture.
However, it is possible your "dry patches" are due to "eczema". This is basically inflammation of the skin cells. You can try an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream to see if this may help. If not, it would be wise for you have a doctor examine it. Best wishes.

In brief: POSSIBLE ECZEMA

Dry patches could be due to eczema but sometimes fungal infections and psoriasis can look like eczema .
Physician review would help confirm the diagnosis.
