Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
You are most welcome to India if you want to come here for further investigations and treatment. H.pylori is difficult to eradicate completely even after taking the full antibiotic course. It is notorious for recurrent infections.

Welcome to HealthcreMagic.

H.pylori is identified as the cause for peptic ulcer , Gastric carcinoma.Its eradication is very important in treatment of these conditions.

It can be eradicated by a combination of prton pump inhibitors (Pantoprazole) and antibiotics till the infection is cleared.
You can test H.pylori by urea breath test or biopsy.
Take care.
