Please help me fix my cast iron!

I have a small Lodge cast iron that seems pretty messed up... as you can see in this picture (http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ma5r0j89e41qztp5po1_500.jpg)
it is rather patch and such. I'm not sure how to proceed- I've tried scrubbing it but there was already "patches" of the cast iron that refused to be seasoned even after several attempts. There are also scratches on the side... please advise!
