Unfortunately, Tagamet will probably not be effective in treating H Pylori infection. H. Pylori is actually caused by bacteria, so if she does have this, then it needs to be erradiated with proper meds, such as antibiotics. Normally, the treatment would two lots of them and then a re-test in about six months time to see whether she is still positive.

The Tagament will be to help her tummy ache by neutralising the acid.

She does seem a little young for H.Pylori though. It may also be GERD, but I suppose it is worth getting her tested for H.Pylori anyway just to see.

Good luck
