Itchy lumps on the thigh. No injury. what else it could be?

Hi. My boyfriend found 3 lumps on his outer thigh and one on the back of his thigh. They are very itchy when touched. they are not warm, red or sore to the touch. He doesn t have any food allergies . He has not changed soap/lotion/detergent/driyersheets/softeners. No new underwear or shorts. He said he had an itch 3 days ago. 2 days ago the lumps appeared and were about an 1/2 inch. today they are larger and still itch. No visible puncture wounds like from a spider bite and he was at work when the itching first started. Any clue on what it might be?

Thank you for your query.

There are two possibilities that I can think of:
1. Fungal infection.
2. Developing boils.
It is very difficult to give an exact guidance without having a look at the lumps. I suggest that they be examined by a doctor who shall guide you accordingly.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing you freind an early recovery.
