I have little red itchy bumps that turn into really deep scabs that take a long time to heal. Bumps occur on arms and upper back what could it be?

In brief: Keratosis pilaris

Is quite common. They generally only get itchy if your skin is dry.
They only scar if you pick at them. You can use an exfoliant and a loofah. Acne is also possible.
