Currently my left testicle is really dry and shiny. Skin

Currently my left testicle is really dry and shiny. Skin is peeling off and this has never happened before. I recently wore some pants that were a little too tight down there and I was sweating in them throughout the day. This is what I believe caused it. Do I have anything to worry about? Do I have to treat it or will it just go away?

am 23 years old an have been dealing with dry skin under my testicle area. It is very itchy and often will wake me in the night. I have come to the conclusion that this is likely due to sweating, but I don t seem to have a problem over-sweating anywhere else. I have heard that the salt in the sweat may be left behind and can cause skin to become itchy and dry. This is not an STD and I ve tried quite a bit for relief - jock itch treatment, talcum powder, vaseline, even a wide assortment of ultra healing lotions, nothing really works.

It all started about three days ago where I had a very strong rash that was swollen on my testicles and it was itchy. Then the next day it the swelling went down but it was still very itchy so I cleaned it very thoroughly, which was painful. Then the next day, the only way I can describe it is that it look like chapped lips. There was dry, peeling skin with very raw, red and irritable skin underneath. Now today there is still some of the flakiness but its most just very dry, shiny and wrinkly. What s happening to me? Its never done this before, and im not sexually active. Should I be worried?
