Thanks for writing your query.

A full clinical examination and some investigations are needed to reach to a diagnosis. There might be a possibility of hepatitis or it could just be gastritis.

Following investigations may be helpful :-
1. Complete Blood Count ( CBC ).
2. Liver Function Test ( LFT ).
3. Urine examination.
4. Stool examination.
5. Ultrasound of abdomen.

I would advise that he should be clinically examined by a medical professional.
An antacid like Omeprazole 40mg once a day before meals along with Domperidone 30mg can help in relief of the symptoms.
Further medical management can be planned after knowing the reports of the investigations.

I hope this is helpful to you.
