How long until I get over my gastritis?

Actually I have esophagitis-gastritis-duodenitis, so basically my entire GI tract is inflamed. I've been on Aciphex for almost two weeks and it's only slightly better. (I've been sick for months; I only just started treatment.) I need to do things other than lay in bed all day (such as, oh, get a job), but I can't when I still become acutely nauseous for no apparent reason. How long until this goes away?
it cut me off there. It should say "esphagitis gastritis duodenitis," with hyphens.

Whatever time it takes.Rest is the best cure  (+ info)

does Naproxen is dangerous when there is a gastritis condition?

what if someone suffers from dysmenorrhea (menstrual pain) and want to have come precribed medication, such as Naproxen, and since naproxen causes stomach irritation, I wanna know if it would be bad for a gastritis condition.

naproxen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug which means it is good at reducing inflammation and pain however, it also reduces mucus production in the stomach making the stomach more acidic which is not good when you have gastritis!  (+ info)

how can i get rid of hypertrophic scar?

is there a way to get rid of a hypertrophic scar?

Hypertrophic scars

Hypertrophic scars are often confused with keloid scars, since both tend to be thick, red, and raised. Hypertrophic scars, however, remain within the boundaries of the original incision or wound. They often improve on their own-though it may take a year or more-or with the help of steroid applications or injections.

If a conservative approach doesn't appear to be effective, hypertrophic scars can often be improved surgically. The plastic surgeon will remove excess scar tissue, and may reposition the incision so that it heals in a less visible pattern. This surgery may be done under local or general anesthesia, depending on the scar's location and what you and your surgeon decide. You may receive steroid injections during surgery and at intervals for up to two years afterward to prevent the thick scar from reforming.


Burns or other injuries resulting in the loss of a large area of skin may form a scar that pulls the edges of the skin together, a process called contraction. The resulting contracture may affect the adjacent muscles and tendons, restricting normal movement.

Correcting a contracture usually involves cutting out the scar and replacing it with a skin graft or a flap. In some cases a procedure known as Z-plasty may be used. And new techniques, such as tissue expansion, are playing an increasingly important role. If the contracture has existed for some time, you may need physical therapy after surgery to restore full function.  (+ info)

Is it normal for Gastritis to cause diarrhea?

I'm a 23yr old female, they told me I have gastritis after an upper endoscopy. My GI doctor told me to take Priolosec for 2 months. I have been taking it for about a week and a half. It seems to be getting worse instead of better, now after I eat anything I get a horrible stomach ache then diarrhea. Is this worth bothering my doctor about or is this just normal with gastritis? They don't know the cause of the gastritis.

Please talk to your doctor again. It is worth mentioning that you have diarrhoea. Or it may be the side effects of the medication.  (+ info)

Gastritis sufferers what do you eat to sooth your stomach?

I was diagnosed with Gastritis and everything I eat makes the gas pain worse. What helps you? I appreciate any serious suggestions. I take Protonix and Gas-x (Simethicone) I may also have Gastropareses but the tests aren't back.

Eat soluble fiber. This includes potatoes (baked, broiled, mashed - not fried - and little butter or sour cream), white breads like rolls and toast and bagels (again, little dairy), applesauce, beans, white rice (some seasoning is OK, but not a lot). I am following the IBS diet for my gas and bloating, and I have to take Gas-X only in a blue moon. By cutting back on dairy (you could be lactose intolerant), you soothe the stomach. By using soluble fiber to begin and end meals, you are giving the stomach something incredibly bulky yet not upsetting (ie, bland) on which to concentrate, with some of the other foods you like in between. As long as you try to eat small meals, and 2 soluble fiber snacks, the gas should dissipate. By reducing gas causing foods in the interim (carbonated beverages, sorbitol in the sugar-free gums, and others, you will do you stomach a world of good.

Good luck!  (+ info)

Is Cipro good to take if I have a stomach infection or gastritis?

I have been nauseated for about 3 months, went to the doctor and was tested for H. Pylori. It came back negative. He put me on Cipro. One of the side affects is nausea and I already have tons of discomfort from the gastritis? Also could doxycyline be any better for this condition. I appreciate any answers, I am so sick and miserabe. Thanks

I can say from my experiences with Cipro it does cause more stomach and intestinal problems. Also doxycyline is very hard on the digestive track. Your doctor could also give you Zofran to help with the nausea.

I have found that Aloe Vera is great healer for the stomach and intestinal track. It can take the stomach a month to get back to normal.  (+ info)

Can I eat hummus when I have chronic gastritis?

I have chronic gastritis and I wanna check if I eat hummus, will it spark off the pain. Thanks.

For many with your condition, garlic is a no-no. Try to find a type of hummus (if possible) with no garlic. Or better yet, make your own!  (+ info)

Hypertrophic scarring on my cartilage piercing, how do I get rid of it as quickly as possible?

I got 2 cartilage piercings on my right ear 5 weeks ago. I have noticed some strange bumps forming around my bottom one. I did some research and identified it as a hypertropic scar. I'm a bit worried and want to change my earrings as soon as possible. Are there any extra step I can take bedsides hot salt water compressed to help it heal as quickly as possible?
Thank you!

If it's been 5 weeks, you should be okay to change the jewelry. Just be careful and sanitary.
If you were doing some research, you already know that hypertrophic scarring/keloids sometimes go away, sometimes don't. There's no real science to treating them, it's trial and error. If they are extremely bothersome, go back to your piercer and see what s/he thinks, or visit your doc.
Otherwise, I recommend trying different jewelry to see if it gets better or worse and go from there. Since your piercings are so new, it would be best to minimize your efforts until the risk of infection is gone or you might wind up with bigger problems than bumps around your piercings.  (+ info)

Does Silicone gel get rid of hypertrophic scarring?

I have hypertrophic scarring in both my ears. When I got them pierced I put the earrings on too tight causing the scarring; I want to get rid of it. Someone suggested Silicone gel but I’m not too sure about that.
