Treatments depends on the causes of the ulcer, antibacterial drugs can be use to treat H.pylori and antacids can be use to reduce the production of the stomach acid.

Myth 1: Ulcers are caused by stress and anxiety eating you up inside.
Myth 2: Spicy foods burn holes in your stomach.
Myth 3: To heal ulcers, eat only white foods (milk, potatoes, rice).
Myth 4: Ulcers happen only in your stomach.

It is a known fact that stress and spicy food can’t cause ulcer but however they can make the pain worse.
Also milk can only reduce the pain for a while.
