Peptic ulcers are open sores which develops on the inside lining of the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine. The most common symptom observed in case of peptic ulcer is stomach pain. The most common causes of peptic ulcers are infection with the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) as well as long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs. Stress and spicy foods do not cause peptic ulcers but it contributes to make the symptoms worse. The sore may develop on the lining of the esophagus, stomach or small intestine when stomach acid damages the lining of the digestive tract. Treatment usually includes medication to decrease stomach acid production and antibiotics.
