Hi Almacoy,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
You are probably having a local viral/fungal infection of the penis and it is the local discomfort and pain that is causing the erectile dysfunction.
So your problem will resolve once you treat the local infection.
Please get a consult with local physician and get investigations.
A urine routine and culture, and a gram stain and culture/ sensitivity of the glans swab would be helpful in the diagnosis and treatment.
Wish you a great health!

Hi..darealmacoy the cause of erectile dysfunction is due to dry skin on penile area.. you need to get treated for it, only then you can get good erection... drink much of water, cucumber, watermelon, these have good effect on skin and prevents cracking...

Take care..
