Painful, itchy, swollen bumps on stretch marks. Tucks pad temporarily stopped itching. History of stretch marks. Cause of concern?

I have old stretch marks on my hips and upper thighs. Yesterday I noticed a painful, itchy, swollen bump on the stretch mark (similar to a bug bite ) in two separate places ( approximately 2 1/2 appart). I put a tucks pad on the spot yesterday which temporarily relieved the itching. Is this something I should worry about? Is there something I could put on it to help?
