Ulcers are open sores or lesions that form on the skin or mucous membranes, and they can occur in various parts of the body, including the skin, mouth, stomach, duodenum (the first part of the small intestine), and other areas. Ulcers can be caused by various factors, including infections, injuries, inflammation, or other underlying medical conditions.
When is it necessary to see a doctor?
It is necessary to see a doctor if you suspect you may have ulcers. Symptoms of ulcers can include abdominal pain, burning sensation, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, and other digestive issues. If you experience persistent or worsening symptoms, it is important to seek medical evaluation for proper diagnosis and treatment, as untreated ulcers can lead to serious complications.
