An ulcer is an open sore on the skin or mucus membrane. Although skin ulcers are fairly common, usually when we think of ulcers, we think of those affecting the digestive system, namely oral ulcers, which occur in the mouth and are commonly called canker sores; peptic ulcers which affect the stomach, esophagus, or duodenum; or intestinal ulcers, which affect the small and large intestines, colon, and rectum in a condition known as ulcerative colitis.
The ulcers that concern us in this section of the website are the commonly occurring peptic ulcer which can develop in the esophagus, stomach, or duodenum (between the stomach and the small intestine); the principal cause is erosion of the mucus membrane from stomach acid (hydrochloric acid), and gastric ulcers which are peptic ulcers that develop in the stomach, and duodenal ulcers, as their name implies, develop in the duodenum.
A possible complication of ulcers is bleeding, which if considerable, can cause vomiting or blood or passing blood in the feces. The loss of large amounts of blood can be serious and should be attended to by a physician.
Traditional Chinese medicine attributes peptic ulcers to stagnation of Stomach and Liver Chi, and in addition to recommending herbal therapy, also suggests dietary changes that include avoidance of alcohol, smoking, caffeine, chocolate, and spicy foods.
