Get thee to a Doctor and obtain the horse pills that can help with this condition! In the meantime, avoid acids. Remember when I went through this, and wouldn't want that back on me.

Agree with chairlifter on the acids. Stay off dairy products but if you can stand the taste drink buttermilk. Eat smaller meals and more often. No alchol will aggrivate it. Hope it heals quickly.

Chairlifter is giving good advice. Stomach ulcers are caused by a bacteria, H. Pylori, and you'll need an antibiotic. Be prepared-they may want to do a scope to see the extent of the ulcerations. You can refuse the scope and insist on treatment only. They should inform you if there are any risks involved in not getting a scope done.

Try Italian/Mediteranian with slow introduction of the tomatoes in anything you cook. Avoid the fresh for now. Slowly the Tummy gets used to the acids and it begins to make alkalines. Avoid of course citrus fruits pineapples BUT if doing the Greek style of chicken add LEMON SKINS in about 1/4 into cooking time...of course the Meditteranian secret is that good slug of olive oil in everything also. I went through the ulcers 15-30years of age but then I got me a Sicilian Mum-in-law! Hope it works for you - it did for me after about 6 months. cheers

I would avoid Nikko's advice, and go with a Medical Professional's instead. It is one visit to get the diagnosis that you are ulcerating, and then another to (25-30 years ago!) drink the barium milkshake and get the "picture" of your gut lining taken. From that, you are "on record" for the rest of your life, that can be dealt with quickly and effectively. If you are ulcerating, you need to understand why and what to do, rather than using some home remedy that may make it worse. Not a Medical Professional myself, but take your pick, and suffer the consequence.

^^^ I agree, see a doctor first if you have a medical condition. Even real doctors don't dispense medical advice without first seeing the patient. The internet is really not the place to ask others for random medical advice, some illnesses can actually be aggravated by the wrong self-treatment.
