Peptic ulcer

Peptic ulcers are open sores that develop on the inner lining of the stomach, upper small intestine, or oesophagus. They are generall caused by Helicobacter infection or taking anti-inflammatories. Here are the common symptoms and treatment options:


  • Burning stomach pain
  • Indigestion
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Bloating
  • Feeling of fullness or hunger


Effective management of peptic ulcers involves addressing the underlying causes and relieving symptoms. Treatment options include:

Medications: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and H2-receptor antagonists to reduce stomach acid production.

Antibiotics: If Helicobacter pylori bacteria are present, antibiotics are prescribed to eradicate the infection.

Antacids: Over-the-counter medications to neutralize stomach acid and provide symptom relief.

Lifestyle changes: Avoiding irritants like alcohol, tobacco, and antiinflammatories, as well as managing stress and maintaining a healthy diet.

Surgery: In severe cases or complications like bleeding or perforation, surgical intervention may be necessary.

Early diagnosis and prompt treatment can help prevent complications and promote healing of peptic ulcers.
