My question is,a)does eso kit eradicate fully the H-pylori? b)In case the bacteria is elliminated,will the wound fully heal? c)In this world of counterfeits,how will i know the original eso kit? d)is eso kit the best anti h-pylori medication available?

1... Although H.PYLORI can be eradicated completely but it is not certain that just one course of antibiotics may treat up completely.Many times therapy is repeated is again.
If 2 therapies fail,then your doctor may wish to perform endoscopy and biopsy with culture to check the antibiotic susceptibilities./ sensitivities of the H.pylori strain you have.
After Knowing the antibiotic sensitivity profile of the H.pylori strain you have been infected with the doctor can then treat you with the most appropriate antibiotic combination that will get rid of the H.pylori you have.
2...once the germ is eradicated,your ulcer would heal completely.
3... To be sure,buy the medicine from a reputed shop and take a purchase bill.
4.. There are many combinations are available in the market and all are good.
Leave it to your doctor for the proper combination.
