This is due to food and or water contamination, treatment involves use of antibiotics like amoxicillin and metronidazole. The metallic taste is due to metronidazole. Complete the course of treatment .

Dont worry dear. H. pylori bacteria indicate more prone your partner for gastric or duodinal ulcer. Ulcer can be cure by diet control. Diet should be free from oilly and spicy food. Diet most be in small interval and small quintity at a time. Use of high antibiotic and pain killers must be avoided.
