- While spicy foods don't actually cause heartburn or stomach ulcers, they can make both worse, says Sonpal. “Spicy peppers burn going down but usually won't harm you,” he says. Contrary to the flavor it adds in the short term, regularly eating spicy foods can dull your taste buds' sensitivity over time.

What are the best foods to eat if I have a stomach ulcer?
- STOMACH ULCER Treatment. You can treat ulcers.

- TASTY Alternatives.
- Fruit and vegetables.

- The good news is that you can easily reduce these side effects by drinking less green tea, drinking a different type of green tea, drinking decaf green tea or brewing your tea less strong. If you have a peptic ulcer or an acid reflux problem, green tea can cause stomach upsets or nausea.
- Here are my top foods to ease an upset stomach:
- Ginger. If you are vomiting or have bad nausea, have some fresh ginger!
- Papaya. Another great fruit to eat when you are feeling nauseous or unwell is papaya (or as we sometimes call it in Australia, paw paw).
- Bland Foods Like Rice, Potatoes & Toast.
- Avoid drinking hot liquids like tea, coffee and avoid oily, spicy food. This will only aggravate the condition of the mouth ulcers. Consume a diet that is rich in calcium and vitamin C, for e.g., foods like yogurt, milk, cottage cheese and orange juice.
