The link above discusses H Pylori infection and it's role in GERD/stomach ulceration. It's important to note that while many people have H Pylori as a cause of their stomach issues many do not. Further, if you do have the infection in general both an antibiotic and an acid reducer such as a proton pump inhibitor are used together to achieve healing. It is best to see a doctor to help you figure out both the cause of your discomfort and how to make it better.

Good Luck - Stephanie
