Treat the Ulcers: In case you have ulcer in the stomach, it can be treated with Antacids and a short course of antibiotics. You need a Gastroenterologist who can monitor the progress and make sure that you are receiving the optimum dosage of the drugs to suppress acid in the stomach. Pain should subside if the ulcers are healing.
