Welcome to ehealthforum.
The red bump could be either due to folliculitis or inflammed Bartholin gland duct.
Get yourself examined by your gynecologist to see what it is and get started on treatment for it.
If Herpes or HPV is suspected, after your examination, then both you and your partner should get confirmatory test done, and if any infection is found, both should take treatment simultaneously. Avoid having unprotected intercourse while being on the treatment.
All the best.
