Pea-sized lumps under skin in upper thigh area

Lately I have been getting these small, pea/marble sized lumps under the skin at my upper thigh and the lower buttocks. They are usually quite sore and sometimes they release a liquid but VERY rarely. Also, some of them get a white head like a pimple. THey are becoming more frequent and I need to know what they are and how to treat them. thanks.

They sound like boils to me. I get them in my upper thighs. I had to keep going to the dr for antibiotics, but he fianllu gave me a rx for a wash to prevent them. I would go to the dr to have them checked out to be sure. Some may need to be lanced.
