Stomach ulcers (gastric ulcers) occur when the thick layer of mucus that protects your stomach from digestive juices is reduced.
Stomach ulcers are caused by a bacterial infection, and acids from the foods we eat can make the pain and discomfort worse. Long-term use of aspirin or anti-inflammatory medicines can cause stomach ulcers.
Stress and spicy foods can make an ulcer worse.
Stomach ulcers may be easily cured, but they can become severe without proper treatment. Uncomplicated stomach ulcers take up to two or three months to heal completely.
