I want to ask if children aged 2 or 3 years can get ulcers?

1 Answer:

Hello Fitrianingsih, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.

Ulcer is a disease characterized by pain and bloating in the stomach accompanied by nausea to vomiting. Not only occurs in adults, ulcers can also occur in toddlers with symptoms similar to those in adults.

Possible causes of toddlers affected by ulcers also vary, such as H. pylori bacterial infection that comes from unclean food or drinks, irritation of the digestive tract, side effects of certain drugs, side effects of radiotherapy, or stress due to post-surgery.

If the child has symptoms of heartburn as mentioned above it is advisable to immediately be taken to the doctor or the nearest pediatrician to find out the exact cause. The doctor or pediatrician will conduct a complete physical examination and other supporting examinations needed such as blood tests or endoscopy.

At present some things that can be done are to avoid oily, sour, or too spicy foods and caffeinated drinks in toddlers and give gastric medications such as antacids according to the dosage on the package to reduce pain. In the future, make sure food and drinks consumed by infants are clean and washing hands before eating can be done to prevent ulcers in infants.

So many answers from me, hopefully useful.
