Genital warts or ingrown scar?

Then when it healed it turned into a small bump, that I tried picking off because I thought I didn't get the entire hair out. At that time my girlfriend of over two years got her Pap smear and came back clean. And after that the little bump remains. I've recently in a panic tried the apple vinegar treatment. And have abstained from sex as to be sure. My worry is it is genital warts. But I only had one little bump. And it looked nothing like the ones I see online.
