Welcome to ehealthforum,
The vaginal/vulval itching that you describe could be suggestive of infections, pH imbalances, opportunistic infections, hormonal insufficiency, chemical irritation, etc, and the bump that you describe could be due to folliculitis, sebaceous cysts, blocked paraurethral gland ducts, infected/blocked Bartholin’s gland duct, Bartholin cyst, etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation done by your doctor/gynecologist. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for examination and to go ahead with getting hormonal analysis (done to rule out dryness or itching caused by hormonal insufficiency), and vaginal swab/smear test done (to confirm/rule out infective causes), etc. If the itching is getting worse, you can also request for prescription of antihistamines to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation in the area and keep the area clean and dry. Rinse undergarments well and use antiseptic solution for the last rinse. If infective cause is detected, it is important to get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
Take care.
