Hi Welcome to Health Care Magic

What you are describing me may be Skin Tag. If inflamed by scratching/ puling will cause pain.

You can do few thing.

Tie it at the base with string and It will cut off. Mean while use Ibuprofen 600mg 3 times a day.

2. Consult Dermatologist. He will cauterize with nitric oxide or laser

3. If you go to Surgeon he will cut it ans suture it.
