    Good evening, sorry about that. Sending a picture could have helped a lot. It might be an acrochordon. This could be as a result of diabetes mellitus. I'll advise you have your blood sugar done. Removing it isn't so difficult. You should see a dermatologist to help with the removal. Infection of the skin tag could result in the pain you are feeling which could need antibiotics treatment. Take care

    The pictures were uploaded probably it's due to your network. If they are big and causing pain you will be needing medical attention.
