Family history of ulcers, smoking, excess drinking, improper diet, and stress are all contributing factors. Some ulcers are due to an infection by the helicobacter pylori bacteria.

A friendly bacterium, normally found in your intestines, complements the use of antibiotics in riding your body of the harmful bacteria.
