Onset of random lumps on the scalp, forehead that are painful and disappear within few days. Suggestion?

My teenage daughter has started having random lumps on her head that appear and disappear. They look like pop-knots from being hit, but that hasn t been the case. She has had them appear all over her head including her forehead , but they disappear within a few days. Sometimes they are painful and other times not. By the time we get a doctor s appointment schedule they are gone. Any suggestions????
