Hello docs. I was wondering can ulcers rupture and cause internal bleeding?

Yes

Bleeding
Bleeding duodenal ulcers are caused by the ulcer eroding through the back wall into the gastroduodenal artery. Perforations in the front part of the duodenum or stomach usually cause free air with intense pain, but usually do not bleed significantly.

How can I remedy a bleeding ulcer?

See a doctor

Bleeding
I do not know how you would know if you have a bleeding ulcer. Have you seem a doctor or had endoscopy for this diagnosis? Bleeding from ulcers of the stomach can range widely, from minor to severe. Usually medical treatment to lower the stomach acid, and antibiotic treatment if a biopsy or breath test shows H. pylori is present is a starting point.

What should I do with a bleeding ulcer?

Treatment

Bleeding
I am assuming that you have had proper medical evaluation with a doctor and an upper endoscopy to diagnose a bleeding ulcer. Biopsies are taken to ensure it is benign & to look for H. pylori. Medications like H2 blockers, antacids, sucralafate & antibiotics if + H. pylori. Endoscopy can treat the bleeding, emergency surgery if the bleeding does not stop.

Bleeding ulcers require treatment in order to stop the bleeding. The rate of bleeding determines how long some one can weight to be treated. If you are actively bleeding and have blood in your stool you will need immediate treatment. A small ulcer that is only oozing occasionally still requires treatment. Today ulcers can be treated better than ever so don't wait, be well and heal.
