Occasionally a stomach infection can cause sour belching and also cause ulcers. The infection is caused by a bacteria called h. Pylori.

Possible gut infect: Your symptoms suggest a gut infection (sometimes called colitis, enterocolitis, dysentary, etc). Sometimes non-infections can also cause these symptoms. The rotten egg taste is classic for a few infections, though it can also occur with others. Rx (ie, antibiotics if neces) depends on cause (diagnosis) & that requires stool studies & more. See dr straight away! In meantime, drink plenty of fluids. ...Read more

Burping and it taste like boiled eggs I have not eaten any eggs.

Burping and it taste like boiled eggs I have not eaten any eggs.

It: It sounds as though you may be suffering from gastro-esophageal reflux disease (gerd). The most common symptoms of gerd are:

- heartburn
- sore throat
- "lump in the throat" sensation or difficulty swallowing
- acidic or sour taste in your mouth (some people describe a rotten egg-type taste)
- dry cough
- hoarseness
- regurgitation (wet burps)

dairy products such as yogurt or milkshakes can give some relief - milk has antacid properties. You can also try over the counter antacid medications such as Tums (calcium carbonate) or maalox. It is important to discuss these symptoms with your doctor. There are many other antacid and acid blocker medications that can help alleviate your symptoms if your symptoms continue. In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to help:

- avoid spicy, acidic, or fatty foods
- avoid alcohol and caffeine
- quit smoking if you smoke
- avoid tight clothing - especially tight belts and pants
- eat small meals
- do not eat for a few hours before going to bed.

Good luck! ...Read more

Unlikely, but...: This is not unusual and any life change can be a part of why. Try Pepto-bismal or other antacid but it it continues as a Dr for a GI exam - may be giardia.

I: I cannot diagose your abdominal problems. However having burps that smell like rotten eggs is also called "sulfur belching". There can be a number of possible causes. One is that you may have an infection of your gut such as h. Pyloribacterium or giardia. Egg burps can occur with problems involving the stomach or the gallbladder. If you have are having a problem breaking down foods such as meats this can be problematic. Have you traveled anywhere recently where the food or water might be contaminated? I don't know how long you have had these symptoms. Since you are losing fluids from diarrhea, it is important to drink water. If you start feeling lightheaded, especially when going from lying to standing, your pulse rate is very rapid and you feel weak, you may be getting dehydrated. If this occurs you might need to go to the emergency room for intravenous hydration. If the symptoms continue for several days I recommend calling your doctor. ...Read more
