Welcome to the forums!

I don't think I've ever seen a painted styrofoam exterior. Normally the foam is covered with stucco or drivet which can be painted. Since you can't scrape, sand or pressure wash - maybe rubbing the affected areas with a coarse rag might help. Once the peeling areas are taken care of, check the rest of the paint for chalk. If chalky, add flood's emulsa bond to the 1st coat of latex paint/primer.
