What causes scrotum to be covered in a coating of film?

My scrotum is covered in a film, almost like a shedding. When i clean it off, the area looks almost like a chemical burn. Then it itches, and grows back. Plz help

I'm 27, 6' 170lbs. Recently had symptoms familiar with pinworm. Currently awaiting lab results but have had Mebenzola (or whatever its called) for precautionary measures. Also, likelihood of STI similar to HPV (Bumps,skintabs, possibly cancerous)

According to your complaint, it can be a simple yeast infection. Local antifungal with steroid will help you. It can due to allergy to soaps. If its pinworm, you can physically see a worm in the genital area.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
