An ulcer is an open sore. Peptic ulcers develop in the lining of the stomach or upper part of the small intestine (duodenum). An ulcer in the stomach is called a gastric ulcer, and an ulcer in the duodenum is called a duodenal ulcer.
Most ulcers are caused by bacteria called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), which are believed to be transmitted from person to person through close contact and exposure to fecal matter or vomit. The bacteria cause an infection that weakens the protective mucus in the stomach and duodenum, allowing acid to get through to the sensitive lining beneath. Both the acid and bacteria irritate the lining and cause an ulcer to form.
If left untreated, a H. pylori infection can cause gastritis (inflammation of the lining of the stomach). Gastritis can occur suddenly (acute gastritis) or gradually (chronic gastritis). An untreated H. pylori infection may also progress into peptic ulcer disease or stomach cancer later in life. Another common cause of gastritis is long-term use of aspirin, ibuprofen and other anti-inflammatory drugs.
In the past, children with peptic ulcers lived with the chronic condition for several years or even a lifetime. Today, we have a better understanding of what causes peptic ulcers and how to treat them, meaning most children can be cured.
Symptoms of peptic ulcers, gastritis and H. pylori infection can be very mild in some children.
Abdominal discomfort is the most common symptom of peptic ulcers and usually feels like a dull, gnawing ache. The pain often occurs two or three hours after a meal or in the middle of the night when the stomach is empty. The pain may come and go for several days or weeks. Eating and taking antacid medicine helps relieve the discomfort. It is not clear if H. pylori infection without ulcers causes abdominal pain.

Gastritis is irritation and inflammation of the stomach lining. This means the lining is red and swollen. It can cause shallow sores in the stomach lining called erosions. An ulcer is a deeper open sore in the lining of the stomach. It may also occur in the first part of the small intestine (duodenum).
