In brief: PPIs
The most common treatment for stomach ulcers is a proton pump inhibitor (ex.
Omeprazole) they prevent your stomach from making too much acid, allowing your ulcer to heal. Some ulcers are caused by a bacteria and will need to be treated with antibiotics along with the ppi. Make an appointment with your doctor to determine the source of the ulcer and what treatment is best for you.
