I have burning between my anus and scrotum. I have an internal hemmorhoid because I can feel it with my finger. Also I notice when my hemmorhoids are acting up I have erectile dysfunction. Is this most likely all caused from the hemmorrhoid?

yes, swelling from a bad hemorrhoid can cause pressure in the rectum on your prostate gland.

nerves which control erection go around the prostate gland.

you could also have prostatitis inflammation of your prostate gland which can cause sexual problems.

ask your doctor if you might have prostatitis as well

there are steroid suppositories and internal steroid creams like Proctofoam which can help calm down hemorrhoid inflammation which could help your symptoms

antibiotics like cipro can help calm down prostate inflammation and could help your sexual function.

let me know if you have questions.
