I found a weird piece of skin hanging very close to my anus. Its not too painful, but it does have an annoying tendencies when i wipe and all. I took some pictures, and its the same pinkish color as my skin, however, it does look like it has a pimple like version to it. I accidentally popped the end of it, and I got a white solid small form out of it like a zit but it bled crazy for a few seconds before stopping. I don't know if it is a skin tag or what, and if I should be extremely concerned. I'm also pregnant, which has me worried about this.
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
Since you are pregnant, it could be hemorrhoids as hemorrhoids have a tendency to prolapse during pregnancy. Also possibility of this being a genital wart should be ruled out. It could also have been an infected anal gland or a boil, but you must consult a doctor and get this examined. Hope this helps. Take care!
