Brief Answer:
Painkillers like brufen. voveran should be avoided

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
By painkillers I meant medications like brufen and voveran which people usually take for joint pains and other body aches. These medications are known to cause gastritis.
For fast relief of symptoms you can take mucaine gel 10 ml or omez insta mixed with water.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Dr.R.K.
