Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the ‘bump’ that you describe without examining you. The cause for it could be infection due to use of old razor or increased sweating and intercourse. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for examination to confirm the cause instead of try self medication/manipulation. Appropriate treatment would be started for you based on the examination and test results. Get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection. Avoid use of harsh soap/deodorant or perfume. Avoid vaginal douching. Drink plenty of water. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes.
Take care.
