In this article, we will talk about the specifications of the best treatment for Helicobacter pylori and what is the treatment of Helicobacter pylori in children.

best treatment of H pylori and treatment of children

The best treatment for Helicobacter pylori should have the following specifications:

First, the patient can bear it, whether financially or healthily

For example, if the patient suffers from severe nausea and vomiting, and the analysis confirmed that he has stomach germs

At that time, he should not be given a bactericide treatment that contains antibiotics that may cause abdominal pain, which increases the patient’s fatigue, so he takes a tablet, and causes him severe fatigue and he cannot complete the treatment

Second, the treatment must contain at least two types of antibiotics

Sometimes the doctor prescribes to the patient two types of antibiotics, so he takes one and leaves the other because it causes him trouble, and sometimes he prescribes 3 types of antibiotics to the patient, in the resistant cases that do not respond to treatment with two types of antibiotics.

Third, the duration of treatment

The duration of treatment ranges from 10 days to two weeks, depending on the treatment regimen. The doctor cannot prescribe treatment for the patient for a week or for a month and a half because this exposes him to problems, whether in the liver or in the kidneys.

Fourth, choosing the appropriate antibiotic for the patient

It is important when choosing the type of antibiotic that the treating doctor chooses a type that the patient is not accustomed to using. He must first ask the doctor about the antibiotics he used in the last 6 months because there are patients who take Flagyl when diarrhea occurs and patients who take Augmentin when they feel pain in the throat.

These medicines were sometimes used to treat stomach germs, but now they are useless because some patients are addicted to these antibiotics.

Fifth: Knowing the medicines that patients respond to in the geographical area

Patients may not respond to a particular antibiotic in one country, while patients in another country may not respond to it.

Sixth: Ensure that there are no contraindications to the use of this type of antibiotic

The doctor does not prescribe a germ treatment to a patient without knowing his condition, such as kidney and liver functions, and this determines the type of antibiotic used

Seventh: Ask the patient if he is allergic to any antibiotic

Where many patients suffer from an allergy to some antibiotics, the most famous of which is penicillin allergy.

Eighth: the patient's age

 The medicines that are used for young age are different from those used for the older age

Ninth: It is also important to alert the patient to two points

The first is that the patient will not feel better during treatment

It is important to qualify himself that not after one or two doses he will feel better and that he will not feel better until after the end of the treatment and that during the treatment he will feel some side effects of the medicines such as bitterness in the mouth, nausea, and abdominal pain, and this is a normal thing and the feeling of improvement will begin after the end of the two weeks of treatment

The second thing is not to do a Helicobacter pylori analysis again until a month and a half after the end of treatment

Because some patients, unfortunately, do the analysis immediately after the end of the two weeks of treatment, and if it is positive, so they go to another doctor and take another treatment, so the patients must be patient for a month and a half after the end of the treatment to make sure that the germ is removed.

 What is the treatment of children with Helicobacter pylori?

For children under 12 years of age who are infected with stomach germs, it is not recommended to give them any treatment except in certain cases

First: That the child complains of constant pain in the mouth of the stomach, and when the gastroscopy was done, ulcers appeared in the stomach or duodenum.

Second: The child suffers from iron deficiency anemia, and when researching all the causes that cause iron deficiency anemia, the cause was not known. In this case, the child is given treatment for stomach germs because it is one of the causes of iron deficiency anemia.

Third: Some patients who have an immune deficiency in platelets found that if they suffer from Helicobacter pylori and they are treated, this immune deficiency will improve.

 Why not treat children infected with Helicobacter pylori?

First: The chance of a child developing complications because of Helicobacter pylori is very, very low.

Second: the child with his immunity can eliminate the germ.

Third: Children constantly get stomach flu and colds, and they take antibiotics in abundance, and the germs have immunity against antibiotics, and therefore if they take the treatment of Helicobacter pylori, the child may not respond to it because they took different types of antibiotics previously, so it is not preferable to give the treatment of Helicobacter pylori to children Less than 12 years old.
