What triggers ulcers?

I don"t think there is a single answer however in 2005 two Australian scientists received the Nobel Prize for services to medicine by proving that peptic ulcers are in fact treatable by antibiotics, and not due to aciddic imbalances damaging the stomach lining as previously thought. This has revolutionised treatment for ulcers. Search: Nobel Prize medicine ulcers in google for all links. Yes, the majority of gastric ulcers are caused by an organism called Helicobacter pyloris.

What causes an ulcer?

A peptic ulcer is caused mostly by H. pylori bacteria but also can be caused by excess acid or a combination.

When the mucous of the stomach is broken down by excess acid or H. pylori the lining of the stomach becomes irritated and overtime can cause a soar in the stomach.

  • Some symptoms: Black stool(blood), a harsh dull pain in abdominal area, vomiting blood.
  • H. pyloris is a bacteria that can live in the digestive tract. For some people there are no symptoms, but for others, there can be a lot of pain. You can find a lot of information about ulcers and H. pylori on the internet. Of course, if you think you might have an ulcer, you should speak with your doctor.

Should you take Ibuprofen if you have had an ulcer?

Ideally no, if you have a previous history of gastric or duodenal ulcer. Ibuprofen and related analgesics act by inhibiting an enzyme called COX2 (cyclo oxygenase 2). This enzyme produces prostaglandins, which are essential for maintaining the gastric/duodenal mucosa. Prostaglandins also maintain blood circulation to the epithelial (membrane) lining. Thus, inhibition of prostaglandins may be ominous, particularly in the vulnerable.

Should one avoid the 'charming' man who gets defensive if you question his actions that affect you?

Run for your life! Red flag! Inability to accept disagreement and criticism is a bad sign. Not every charmer is an abuser - but many abusers are "pathological charmers".

Answer

Get out now... I just got out of that situation... run and run fast.. they are abusive and don't explain just go otherwise he will charm you to stay!

Answer

My abusive ex boyfriend put the charm on thick....and I mean thick when we first starting going out. He also was very secretive, went out on weekends without me and had a reason/need to do so. He too was very defensive...so bad I thought I was really being to over critical and could not accept the actions of his behaviors toward me. Seriously.....RUN AWAY! These are red flags for you. If you are even a bit hesitant...then I would keep my distance and watch him from afar! Charm is their way of "obtaining a victim." But you don't even know you are going to be one.....until he has captured you in his web of deceit.

Answer

This is a huge red flag. An old x friend became enraged when I questioned his so-called concern. It wasn't concern, it was control he seeked. And knew I figured him out.

What causes underarm ulcers?

Might be an allergic reaction to your deodorant. You might want to try going without deodorant for a few days and treating the ulcer with antibiotic cream to see if it clears on its own (using corn starch will absorb moisture and odors in the meantime). If this does not work, I would highly recommend seeing a physician.

Please understand that I am not a doctor and in no way is anything I have said to be construed as medical advice. The best person to address such issues is your personal physician.

Hope you feel better soon! (-:
