Thanks for your query.

Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you had cut your scrotal skin which after healing has become white in colour.

Normally it takes 4-6 months for melanin pigment to get deposited in newly formed dermis and epidermis and to get normal brown colour.
Do not worry it will become normal in 6 months time.

Hope, I have answered your query.

Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions. I shall be happy to help you.

Thanks with Regards.
