No doctor?: If you can't get to a doctor, the best alternatives will be a gentle diet. Avoid acidic food, spice, salt, fatty or heavy foods. Smaller, slow meals. Chew a long time before swallowing for digestion help from saliva. Don't drink during meals or right after - before is good. Be active - but before meals, not right after. Rest & relax as possible. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Not recommended: The only arthritis drug I use in patients with ulcer is tylenol (acetaminophen). If the arthritis is advanced and painful, narcotic and acetominephorin combinations can be used. For inflammatory bowel or skin conditions, topical drugs and biologics are considered. High use of tylenol (acetaminophen) has been associated with ulcer as well. ...Read more
