Recurring painful bumps, itchy on the thumb causing arm pain. Heal with antibiotics. What are these?

I workout lifting weights and I m a MT. I have these bumps that keep coming back on my thumb . It hurts so bad, gets really tight, pain up my arm so painful that my veins bulge out. These bumps itch and usually I drain the bumps and go on antibiotic and it clears up and comes back in 3 or 4 months. Dr. Doesn t know what it is.
