Bumps on skin, look like pimples, white in the center, occur on scratching. Treatment?

Hello I ve been noticing bumps randomly on my skin i don t notice or feel them until i scratch that area and afterwards a bump rises and they look almost pimple like their red around and white in the center. Once i scratch the bump it pops i guess and then there is a scab. They itch only sometimes and they don t hurt. Can you tell what this is?
