Welcome to icliniq.com.

The reason can be gastritis, which is inflammation of the stomach. Please do the mentioned test and use the medicine below until you get the test result.

Investigations to be done:

H.Pylori in stools.

Probable diagnosis:

H. Pylori infection.

Treatment plan:

Ranitidine 150 mg one capsule two times per day before food.
Avoid chilli food, caffeine, mint, soda drinks, chocolates, and heavy fried food. Until I see the lab results. Give two hours gap before sleep and after eating.

Regarding follow up:

Follow-up when you get the lab result and mention whether you are getting improvement on the prescribed medication.
