Peptic Ulcer in Children

An ulcer is an open, painful wound. Peptic ulcers can form in the stomach or over the upper region of the small intestine called duodenum.

This can lead to the formation of an ulcer.Peptic ulcer refers to both these types of ulcers. People of any age like children, young adults or even old people can get affected with peptic ulcer.
