Lubricate the area with mineral oil then GENTLY try to push the prolapse back inside. Work slowly and gently. If you get it back inside you may have to hold it there until he stops pushing.

Getting the prolapse back inside is not the whole problem. You have to figure out why it happened in the first place - constipated, kidney/bladder stones, if female, egg bound. The reason for the prolapse needs to be corrected or it will continue to happen.
