In brief: Gas!

Gas-x will break up the large gas bubbles into smaller ones.
Charcoal tablets will prevent the production of gas from various things. More importantly, you could consider decreasing the gas producing things in your diet, such as broccoli, beans, and cauliflower. If you eat those things take beano. Also, carbonated beverages can also make you very gassy. Good luck!
