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?

No I could try to take one w cell. It is painful whenever I move my tongue any direction below the tongue in that area.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Even when I swallow
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

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.

What can I do to reduce the pain. Salt water?
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

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.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
