    I've heard of KY working. Definitely keep it moist. You should really take it to a vet, or at least call one for guidance, if the prolapse doesn't go away. Prolapse is a serious issue. The tissue is at risk of necrosis and infection.
    How's your credit? Care Credit is a credit card that can be used for medical expenses, both for you and for veterinary costs. Some vets, especially emergency vet hospitals, can do an instant request and you can pay with the new account right away when the system gives you an account number. You might also be able to sign up online.

    Unfortunately prolapses tend to be a reoccurring problem and the prognosis is usually poor. Obviously a vet trip is preferred but given your situation palliative care is the only option. I would keep your frog is a simple setup with moist paper towels as a substrate and a few fake plants that can be easily cleaned and disinfected. Provide a bowl with clean water daily. Should a prolapse occur you can soak your frog in a solution of honey and water. Honey has antimicrobial properties and is a better choice than sugar. Good luck.
