My scrotum skin itches intensely and when scratched peels and cracks very easily all over .The flakes look like shedded snake skin. Is this an std?

In brief: Scrotal dermatitis

This doesn't sound like an std but perhaps a scrotal dermatitis.
If you are applying something to this area i tis possible that you have developed a reaction to it. Due to differences in the scrotal skin compared to the adjacent thighs one doesn't see fungal infection there. Seeing a dermatologist should help clarify the answer and best recommend treatment.

In brief: No

Not an std but treatable by your local derm. Look up lichen simplex chronicus.
