Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The symptoms that you describe (burning while urination, presence of bumps, soreness, bumps on your partner’s penis) suggest possibility of vaginal and/or urine infection. Drink plenty of water, it will help in flushing out infection faster. Avoid further intercourse. Get your partner treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection. If symptoms are persistent and not getting controlled, consider visiting ER and request for urine test and vaginal swab/smear test to identify the causative agent and get started on definitive treatment.
Take care.
