First, treatment for the ulcer. Taking just antacids is not enough. That is treating the symptom but not doing anything for the actual problem. Taking something like Pepcid every day, twice a day is good for getting rid of the peptic ulcer. I know I had one.

Yes, I had bad breath and horrible stomache problems before I was DX and told to start taking Pepcid. I took 20 Mg two times a day every day for almost a year before the problem was gone. It takes a very long time for the ulcer to heal. The constant acid eruptions is what causes the bad breath and taking care of the acid problem takes care of the bad breath.

That said you still need to have good oral hygene or the problem will be bacteria in your mouth causing the bad breath.

    The short answer to this question is yes, peptic ulcers can cause bad breath. To expand on this, the real problem with peptic ulcers (the problem that normally causes them in the first place) is either poor digestion or infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, or both. Food fermenting in the stomach creates sulfurous compounds which create the smell. By the way, another cause of ulceration is regular use of aspirin and/or other NSAIDs.

    The solution to this is to get rid of the underlying problem. I believe that there is a fairly simple drug protocol for killing off H. pylori and thus starting to heal the stomach; it involves an antibiotic cocktail and strong antacid drugs, such as Zantac, to keep the acid from causing further damage. There are natural methods as well, such as grapefruit seed extract and manuka honey.

    To improve digestion; eat less fatty food and red meat, and eat little and often – some authorities recommend 6 small meals per day.
