Can a skin tag become infected? ?

I have a skin tag on my armpit but over the past couple of days it grew a red bump on it, I squeezed it and pus came out.. the tag has now gone back to normal but my armpit is a bit sore.. not sure whether anyone has experienced this before? I'm a massive worrier 

This is what it looked like before I squeezed it

    If you pick at it, Make it bleed. Keep on until it is sore Yes it can get infected.
