Thanks for your query.Flatulence
and gas formation is due to increase in bad bacteria in the gut. A course of Probiotics, such as Lactobacilli; PPIs, such as, Pantoprazole
or Rabeprazole; and, Pro-kinetic agents, such as, Domperidone
or Metoclopamide will cure the problems.
If the symptoms of gastritis have been there for a long time, it is commonly due to infection of the stomach & intestine by H.pylori. A 10-14 days' course of anti-H.pylori; followed by 3-6 months' course of PPIs, will eradicate the problems permanently.
Antibiotics are NOT required in common cold
. Anti-allergics, such as, cetirizine
/ levoceterizine, along with nasal decongestants will suffice.
Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he agree with me, and will prescribe suitable treatment as advised.
