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

Do you see any inflammation, rash, etc?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
OK
This needs examination.

Did you have any trauma?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No Truma

OK
And have you had previous infections?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

no

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
OK
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 2 years ago.

only 2 days

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 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.
