Lower labial frenulum hurts, What to do?

For the past 2 days the lower labial frenulum in my mouth has really been hurting. i think I brushed it too hard the other day when I was in a rush because it s just sore , there are no bumps or anything. Do I let it heal on it s own or someone suggested taking Ibuprofen?

It looks like you have developed an ulcer near your frenum. It will resolve in 7 days. You can use mucopain or Dologel ointment. Apply 4-5 times a day 10 mins before having food.

The problem which you have is called toothbrush injury.
You must be using hard to medium bristle toothbrush.
Switch over to soft one.
And regarding the injury purchase Dologel ointment or gel.
Apply 4 to 5 times a day.
After application let the medicine stay for atleast 5 to 10 mins.
Apply especially before taking food.
