Hello,
This itchy red menstrual bump can be due to hives which can occur during menstrual periods. Ovulation and menstrual cycle are two such phenomenon which is associated with rapid hormone changes every month.

To stimulate ovulation, progesterone levels increase while estrogen levels decrease.These hormonal changes cause the body a great deal of stress and stress is one of the important factors thought to be causing hives. Although urticaria usually is idiopathic, but stress is an important causative factor.

To confirm the diagnosis, get the bump evaluated by a dermatologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
