How can a gas bubble in the stomach be treated?

About a month ago I got sick and during I developed a gas buble in my stomache. feels like its right on my diaphram. Went away after a few days but recently got a 24 hour stomache virus and the bubble came back. I can just push in on my stomach and it causes me to burb. No pain just an uncomfortable feeling.
