User :   Hello Dr., I'm a 39 yr old male. A couple of days ago while having sex, the outer skin of the penis rolled in. It now hurts especially when the penis becomes erect. Do I need to consult a doctor?
Ok let me read the question
User :   sure
Doctor :  
So do you mean the head of the penis is visible out
User :   yes
Doctor :  
Is it swollen?
User :   not really
Doctor :  
Does it pain without erection?
User :   not always Dr. yeah sometimes it does
Doctor :  
Ok then it might be because you have short length of skin and if the skin rolled in it is difficult to come out without an incision
User :   ok dr. so wht do you suggest
Doctor :  
Usually during such time the skin rolls out within 24 to 48 hours and if you do not have erection it is much easy
Doctor :  
If you do not want to wait for somemore time because of pain you must see the Doctor
User :   it's gonna be 48 hrs this evening
Doctor :  
If you want to wait for next 24 hours
Doctor :  
and try to manipulate it over an unerect penis you may do
Doctor :  
If you have to see a Doctor, you should see a General surgeon or Urologist
User :   even when the penis is totally unerect , it is difficult to roll out
User :   in my case
Doctor :  
Ok better see a General surgeon
Doctor :  
He will try to anaesthetize and roll out
User :   is there a possibility this happens again then?
Doctor :  
Generally not again
User :   o.k , will I be hospitalised for this ?
Doctor :  
User :   o.k.
User :   if it does not hurt , do i still need to go to the surgeon
Doctor :  
If it does not hurt during sex or erection you do not have to go to surgeon, but some point the glans of penis may get swollen
Doctor :  
then it becomes a complication of paraphimosis
Doctor :   Actually it is better to get examined by Doctor first
User :   I take your advise doc.
Doctor :  
he will be able to help you if it needs a wait or an immediate roll out
User :   sure doc
Doctor :  
Is there anything else I can help you with
User :   no doc. thank you very much
Doctor :  
Please fill the feedback form say done when done.
Doctor :  
Thanks for consulting me
Doctor :  
Bye for now
User :   sure. you are welcome
User :   bye
