Couple years ago, rough, discolored (brown) patches of skin appeared in the pit area/sides of the chest.

Then it developed in the abdomen area.

It isn't itchy, it's rough, like 600 grit sandpaper, and discolored.

I've taken a scissor to the patch on my abdomen area, taking a blade and scraping (foolishly?), which can be uncomfortable, it doesn't go away.

After the abdomen a rough layer of skin developed on my forehead.
It wasn't discolored, it felt really weird, when touching it, it doesn't feel like you're touching your own skin, very dry/rough. I attempted to scrape it off with a blade and it's gone.

When scraping, there were lots of flakes of skin particles.

None of them are/were itchy.

Brown/tan discoloration, and rough.
What could it be? Is it just normal dry skin?

I've been applying Lubriderm for a couple months, it doesn't seem help.
