I'm a teen and not sexually active. A few weeks ago, I noticed an itching/stinging in my scrotum. This eventually turned into and intense stinging, getting to the point where it hurts to walk. It's very red and increasingly painful. Any idea what it is and what I can do to get rid of it? Thanks!

It could be either a bacterial infection or fungus. Either would need treatment and the sooner the better. You really don't want to let anything in that area get out of control. I suggest you let your parents know what is going on and get to a doctor soon. I would start with a family doctor, but you may need to see a dermatologist.
This could be the same problem a lot of guys on here have. The scrotum turns red and burns. Nothing seems to work. The dermatologist just makes guesses.
He gives you one script after another and nothing works.
It could be eczema. If this is the case, you need to moisturize at least twice a day.
In any case, get help.
