Q: 

I''m suffering from peptic ulcer; Are there any cough products I can take that will not make it worse

A: 21 Feb 2012 Yes there are many cough medicines that you can safely take whilst you have an ulcer - talk with your pharmacist.

Q: 

Could you please explain, just what is a peptic ulcer? One doctor told me I had a stomach ulcer, then another said it was a peptic ulcer. What is the difference?

A: peptic ulcer is a term that is used to include any one of several different types of ulcers that occur in the stomach, pylorus (connection between the stomach and duodenum) and the duodenum (first part of the small intestine). If the hydrochloric acid in the stomach that is used for digestion attacks the stomach wall, it causes a gastric ulcer (stomach ulcer), the same as an acid burn on the skin. The duodenum may also develop an ulcer (duodenal ulcer), as excess acid overflows from the stomach. Pyloric ulcers develop at the point where a muscle ring acts as a valve between the stomach and...

Q: 

Causes of peptic ulcers?

A: peptic ulcers are triggered by digestive acids and other intestinal juices that begin to eat away the protective layers of your digestive tract. This condition can be caused by taking too much medication, particularly NSAIDs or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen and aspirin. Alcohol, caffeine, and smoking are also big factors that cause this condition. This is why, most cases of peptic ulcers are male aged 55 to 70 years old. Having a large population of H. pylori in your gut is also a big factor. This is a type of bacteria that can severely devastate the protective mucus of the gut, allowing digestive acids to uncontrollably erode the intestinal lining. Studies show that...
