Can paraphimosis heal itself?

Usually paraphimosis does not heal itself.

Don’t wait, immediately reposition the foreskin at its usual  position covering glans penis.

How long does paraphimosis last?

Paraphimosis can last for several days. The pain and swelling (ballooning) are unbearable. Left untreated there is a possibility of damage to penis by necrosis.

Foreskin ( Prepuce ) gets rolled behind often during vigorous sexual intercourse or masturbation.

A. Paraphimosis Prevention

After noticing that the foreskin (prepuce) is come back exposing the tip portion (glans) remember to promptly bring it forward in its normal position covering the glans penis.

If the foreskin is not pushed ahead to cover the tip portion of the penis ( glans ) it can get stuck behind.

Manual reduction of foreskin



If you do not bring the foreskin to its former position covering the front end of the penis then the foreskin tightens behind like a rubberband. This can result in swelling and infection (balanitis).
