A few weeks ago I started to have an itch between my thighs. I've noticed recently that I have a raised bump & it itches. Just recently it scarred over but still itches. I currently have just little tiny bumps now.
When I'm at work I sometimes sweat. & my thighs do rub together.
I recently just got rid of ringworm that was on my hand. Maybe it got down there somehow?
So could it be an STD or some kind of bacteria?

There are several possibilities regarding this. It may be an irritation from excess moisture (such as from sweating) that has been irritated by friction. It may also be a clogged skin pore that has become infected. It doesn't sound particularly like an STD but this would be a remote possibility. Ringworm (a fungal infection) can affect skin basically anywhere so it may be that you now have a small area of infection causing your symptoms.
I'd recommend you see your doctor to have this evaluated. Often, these types of issues can be easily diagnosed by having a direct visual exam.
