Stomach Ulcer

Understanding Stomach Ulcers

When sores form on the walls of the stomach or small intestine, they are called stomach ulcers or gastric ulcers. People usually get them after getting an illness with germs or taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for a long time. Signs include sickness, bloating, and burning pain in the stomach. Antibiotics, which kill the bacteria, medicines that lower acid levels, and changes to your lifestyle, like staying away from things that irritate your stomach, are all part of the treatment. A healthy diet and good stress management can help avoid illness and speed up the mending process.
