thanks for choosing healthcaremagic

Your daughter seems to be suffering from severe gastritis . She needs to be evaluated by a gastroenterologist . she will most probably need an endoscopy to rule out conditions such as peptic ulcer , Gerd , obstructive diseases etc .

Mean while she can follow these steps .
1. eat non spicy food
2. eat small meals at regular intervals
3. have food containing plenty of fibres.
4. have a light and early dinner
5. exercise regularly.

She can start tab . pantoprazole + tab. domperidone once in the morning half hour before breakfast if infection has been ruled out . she can take this medication for about a week .

but she needs to be evaluated
