Hello from JustAnswer.
Although the symptoms associated with H. pylori will typically resolve with treatment with antibiotics and eradication of the germ, it usually will also require treatment specific for medical conditions related to the H. pylori. For example, it is common for someone with H. pylori to have gastritis or an ulcer. In these people, there will usually need to be treatment with a medicine to suppress stomach acid in addition to antibiotics. In fact, trying to treat the gastritis or ulcers with only a medicine to suppress stomach acid will usually fail until the patient is also prescribed antibiotics for the H. pylori. Once the H. pylori is eradicated, then the medicines that suppress stomach acid will work to promote healing of the gastritis or ulcer.
