- Generally caused by swelled up blood vessels near the anus
- They rarely cause pain.

The skin around the anus is often looser than the skin on other parts of the body. Skin tags can be an outcome when the blood vessels near the anus expand. If someone has had hemorrhoids or other blood vessel conditions around the anus, they are more likely to develop anal skin tags.
