Brief Answer:
Based on the pictures they look like skin tag, no treatment required

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome
I have gone through your query and the pictures.
Based on the pictures I feel they are skin tags, and are benign, not harmful , so no treatment is required. Unless your concern are mainly cosmetic.

But to confirm, closer and direct visualisation of the area is required , so i would recommend you to see dermatologist. If required they may take a specimen for histopathology and also if you require you can get this skin tags removed by them.

Hope this helps.
Take care
