If your child has an ulcer, he has an open sore or lesion usually found on the skin or mucous membrane. An ulcer in the lining of the stomach or duodenum is referred to as a peptic ulcer.

  • A peptic ulcer located in the stomach is known as a gastric ulcer.
  • A peptic ulcer located in the duodenum is called a duodenal ulcer.
