Needs an examination: Tell us your age please. This area which comes and goes may be related to an intermittent infection, likely a virus infection. I would advise you to show it to your gynecologist, if you have one. Otherwise see your PCP. Without examination of the active bump (?ulcer), it is hard to guess what it might be.
