Hi, Dr. Ashori here, please let me review the information and I'll reply shortly.
The frenulum is a very thin skin that doesn't get a lot of blood supply. Any irritant or a virus or infection can cause it to be painful. You have the option of giving it time to resolve or you can have an oral steroid cream prescribed. Do you have a picture of the skin?
Sure. That would indicate the inflammation which I was referring to. So that could be from irritation or a benign infection. Nothing you mentioned would lead me to think that it's anything serious.
You can gargle with salt water. You can rub virgin coconut oil on there. You can find some numbing medication/creams in the dental section of a pharmacy or drug store.
Hope it feels better soon.
