In brief: Itching scrotal skin

Hi without seeing the sores I have to guess this is either a fungal infection or a folliculitis (infected hair follicles--usually caused by staph).
I would try an over the counter anti-fungal for a day or two unless it is worsening. Then one would need to be seen by a good medical provider.
