Itchy, red bumps, hard, hot to touch. What are they?

I had a few large itchy red bumps a month ago that have scarred but gradually starting to disappear and i was relieved that i stopped getting new ones, but now i have two more a month later. They are big like mozzy bites and are hard and hot to touch. They are definitely not bites though, and it is literally just my buttock area i have them. I have been applying Sudo crem which helps the itching and after a week or so they start going but the scars are horrible and im desperate to know what they are and why all of a sudden im getting them.
