Thank you for the query.

This skin tag is something that associates anal fissure. If you try to look what is above it, you should notice a small wound. This wound is a fissure and this gives the pain when passing the stool.
You should visit your doctor for rectal examination. To get it healed you should keep this area dry and clean, have sitz baths with Quercus Cortex and avoid constipations and hard stool.

Hope this will help.
