Flaky, dry, itchy, irritated skin usually indicates a fungal infection under the foreskin. Just like athlete's foot or jock itch - its the same fungus. Try an anti-fungal ointment at the drug store, or see a doctor for a prescription.

May also be an allergy to a new soap or laundry detergent. Also are you taking any medications such as for acne which can produce dry and flaky skin on other areas as well as the face.
