I have anal skintags. Im too shy and embarrassed to visit my doctor for that. Is there any alternative way of getting rid of them?

Don't be embarrassed: Doctors see this all the time and often things much much worse. Would suggest you see a dermatologist if they are only skintags or see your internist or a colon/rectal surgeon if they are bothering you and you want them removed.
