Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

The tingling and itching is most commonly presented by parasitic infestation like pin worm.The swelling and the bleeding would be due to you pulling out a skin tag which you should have not done.

Well it does heal without causing you much trouble.Do apply XYLOCAIN gelly to reduce the pain and itching in the anus and soon after you get relieved from the swelling I would ask you to take a dose of deworming medication.

Wish you good health.
