Hi,
.
There could be several causes for the skin tag that you have.

Hemorrhoids, which cause painful swelling of blood vessels in the anal area, can cause similar symptoms as in your case

This could also be an anal skin tag secondary to anal fissures, warts due to human papillloma virus or moles. Cancer, in rare instances, may also be a cause.

Do discuss these with your doctor and exclude any possible causes in your case.

Post us if you need any further information and let us know about how you are doing.

Regards.
