Penis comes out of sheath
Saturday , January 25, 2012

My 6 year old paralyzed doxie has started getting these huge erections where it comes out of the sheath.  The few times it has happened before, I have been able to put him in a cool tub of water & it would go down.  Then I used KY to get it back in.  Is there a long term solution for this problem?  It is getting harder to handle this as it is getting more often.  Thank you!    Tara. 
 
Hi there,

This can be a reflex that gets upregulated with time.  There are medications I would want to try first before trying any type of penile surgery.

I would want to try medical management with a benzodiazepine (like Valium) first.
