Bumps: This is probably a common skin rash caused by the rubbing of pants on the skin and sweating. You say he's had it for a long time so unless he's been taking a certain medication for about the same period of time its not a drug eruption (allergy). Pants made of a different material, something softer and more permeable, may help. Ask a dermatologist to take a biopsy of the bump to be certain.

Likely.: Have 2 random red bumps on a leg could easily indicate something as common a bug bite. If it is tender or starting to extend the red discoloration beyond where it is currently, you may want to see a doctor to consider possibly infection post bite. Otherwise, if it is simply itchy and inflamed, use a topical Hydrocortisone over-the-counter product.

Pustules: These are commonly called boils, some are superficial and will drain on their own. Warm compresses help this. Others are deeper and require antibiotics. If increasing in size and pain over a 24 hour period, see a doctor for antibiotics or drainage.

Possibly Foliculitis: It sounds like it might be just some foliculitis. You could try to wash the area with some antibacterial soap everyday. But since it is coming back, I might try some topical clindamycin twice a day for about two weeks.
