Itchy scalp, hard knots under scalp, no blister or white head. Treatment?

My son has been itching his scalp ,but when I checked he has knots under his scalp all over his head. they are somewhat hard, do not have any blister or white head, they are about the size of a dime and they are itching. I check for lice and did not find any. Should I be concerned? Please advise.
