Ulcers are they common in Khmers

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Some ulcers are caused by bacterial infection and can be treated with antibiotics. I wish her the best.

Most ulcers in kids are caused by the Heliobacter Pylori. It takes quite strong antibiotics, together with proton pump inhibitors, to wipe those out. Usually 8-10 days.

Treatment
The good news is that most H. pylori-related ulcers are curable with treatment that combines two different kinds of antibiotics and an acid suppressor. The antibiotics are taken over a 1- to 2-week period and the antacid is given for 2 months or longer. The ulcer may take 8 weeks to heal, but the pain usually goes away after a few days or a week.

To be sure the treatment has worked, doctors may order a stool test to verify the absence of H. pylori. If symptoms last or get worse, doctors might do a follow-up endoscopy 6 to 12 months later to check for H. pylori.

Is she at a hospital capable of treating her properly?


Middle of the range frequency of deaths in Cambodia - 26-32 deaths per million in 2012, or about 300-500 deaths in 2012. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peptic_ul ... HO2012.svg
Is kantha boptha a good hospital?
It's the best for children if you have no money.
If you have money, try Central hospital on 154 or Khema clinic on 294, if for nothing more than a second opinion.
Kantha Bopha is still the best for children, better than all the private ones.
