Hello
Hard to say without exam.
Cure depends on exam findings, but this is often fungal infection.

Do you see any inflammation, rash, etc?

Pin in the frenulum is usually from strain.
It should go away.
Warm compressess can help.
If there is infection it needs treatment but needs exam first
How long has this been going on?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

only 2 days

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
OK
Give it 2 days.
If not better, see a urologist.

Most likely this is just tissue strain.

If you see any redness swelling or rash, go in, at that would be fungal most likely.
