I'm Guessing: The best way to be sure would be to see and feel this lump, but, it sounds like you scratched the skin open and you have either an inflamed lymph node or possibly an infected skin sweat gland.

Without pic ???: The most common cause of a localized ("beside my armpit" "thighs") is skin contact with an irritant or something to which you are allergic. Review all topical products: deodorant, lotion, soap, etc. Unless there is redness/swelling/possible drainage, it is likely not an infection.

Could be: Something else. With a description like that I would be concerned about hidradenitis. It is a condition where the sweat glands become infected and cause repeated infections and abscesses in the areas of apocrine sweat glands (underarms, groin, under the breasts). You should see your primary care doc. Antibiotics and conservative therapy first, but surgery is sometimes necessary. ...Read more
