Gastritis has many causes. Infection with Helicobacter pylori, the bacterium that causes most ulcers,
is the most common cause of acute gastritis. The condition can also be triggered by any substances that irritate the stomach lining. These include anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, aspirin, and arthritis medications, particularly when these drugs are used over the long term. Many other prescript
ion and over-the-counter medications may also irritate the stomach lining, as can tobacco smoke, alcohol, and foods that you have trouble digesting.
Most cases of gastritis are mild and require no attention. However, contact your physician if abdominal pains accompanied by fever or nausea persist and do not respond to self-care measures within 24 hours, or if there is any blood in your vomit.
Aloe Vera Juice or Gel are helpful for many people.
Contact your physician immediately if stomach pain becomes severe.
