Try and just look straight ahead do what you have to do and think about what you need to do for the day to try and preoccupy yourself. Remember that you’re not the only person who’s In your situation

You could wear a swimsuit while showering.

I am willing to help by offering to watch you shower. Once you get used to me watching, adding more people won't be so scary.

Why? Is there a reason you have to use a communal shower? I've NEVER liked communal showers and have done everything to avoid them my entire life. I think they're a stupid concept. We have to get naked around strangers or worse, friends just because someone is too cheap to install walls? I don't think so. I'll put my clothes back on my sweaty or dirty body and go home and shower and do laundry.

You don’t have to be naked to take a shower at the swimming pool. If you’re uncomfortable with taking a shower naked with other people, just shower in your swimming suit.
I’m a guy and I like to put on a swimsuit and take showers when there are naked women around. I love this gender neutral showers.

A poor body image is likely your problem. Until you overcome that you won't get over your fear. Because you judge yourself too harshly, you assume others do as well. I can assure you that this is not the case. Sure there are going to be others there that might look better in some way than you, but there will also be others that don't. That's just part of life and you need to learn to accept that in order to cope with it.
