Detailed Answer:
Thanks fr query .

Based on the facts that you have posted swelling on the testicle with scaling could be mostly due to infection of hair follicle or sebaceous gland .

Start taking antibiotic like Doxicycline and anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily .

It should get cured within a week .If persists you will need to consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical examination in person to establish diagnosis and further treatment .
