skin tag infection

I have a large skin tag that's the size of a silver dollar below belly button on belt line. I had a biopsy done on it came back negative. It has many crevices throughout. It is swollen and it hurts a great deal. It is full of puss on one side and when I get rid of puss it isn't as painful until it needs to be drained again It also smells really bad even before it had puss. It also has small hard black pieces that come off of it. Why so much pain?

Hello,

you need to see your dr and probably have it removed.  the infection is why it is painful.  Infection causes inflammation = Pain.
