Scrotitis: Certainly it can be distressing to have a discolouration on skin on any part of your body especially the genitalia . It is likely that is what we are dealing with but a fungal infection certainly meets the description but could also meet other pathology such as psoriasis i highly advise a proper physical exam by a qualified urologist.

Vitiligo: Sounds like vitiligo. See a dermatologist.
