Brief Answer:
Explanation needed

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to Healthcaremagic! Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. Based on the query you have shared, some explanation is needed as you mentioned dermatologist here that whether your concern is repeated penile erections or skin hair erections caused by erect or pilli?

If you are concerned about repeated erections of penis, it's natural physiological phenomenon and is hormones dependant. If you are having abnormally increased libido it may be due to excessive make sex hormones like angrogens due to adrenal or pituitary glands and may need medical therapy with anti androgenic drugs but after a careful review by an endocrinologist.

Hope this has answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask. Regards.

Brief Answer:
You need to get Hormonal profile too

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Thanks for sharing the details. Yes you are right as that seems like a case of increased libido and mostly it is due to Hormonal causes and sometimes it can be attributed to psychological factors like overthinking about sex, or having more fantasies than usual masses and are in some individuals with higher IQ levels.

But hormonal profiling should be done to start with and a detailed endocrinologist review should be sought. I would still suggest that if no pathology is found, the efforts should be made to direct the energies in some other activities and behavioral or motivational therapies rather pharmacological ones should be preferred.
