Itchy red bump on waist line resulting from stretch mark. Concern?

I have old stretch marks on my side and one of them has developed a large bulging red bump that I took to be a pimple-type formation. Well, it has been a few weeks and not only has it not come to a head, but the color has changed to a deep purplish red. It doesn t really hurt anymore, but it does itch a little. Should I be concerned about it and/or have it looked at?
