Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have torn frenulum since a week. You have applying soframycin cream but has not healed up .
Frenulum tear will take 2 weeks to get cured .

Please get your blood sugar levels tested to rule out Diabetes and take broad spectrum antibiotic orally along with topical antibiotic ointment like Neosorin for application over inured area.

Please ensure to clean genitals with warm water twice daily before applying a Neosporin.
It should get cured within 2 weeks.

Hope I have answered your query.
Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions I shall be happy to help you.
Thanks with Regards.
