Hello!

Thank you for the query.

If he has peptic ulcer like pain, gastroscopy needs to be done at first. It is necessary to rule out stomach cancer, check for H.Pylori infection. Only after this test he can get proper treatment. In case of H.Pylori infection antibiotics are necessary along with stomach acid blocking medicines.
Please consult gastrologist with this issue.

Hope this will help.
Regards.
