5. It may be a sign of a GI infection

Bacteria by the name of Helicobacter pylori is so common that it may be present in half of the world population’s stomach lining, says Dr. Sonpal. While these infections are typically harmless, when they act up, they can cause frequent smelly burps and stomach aches. If left untreated, it can even lead to deeper issues like peptic ulcers (open sores that develop inside your stomach and upper part of your small intestine) or stomach cancer, per the NIH. If your stinky burps come along with severe or constant stomach pain or bloody or black stools or vomit, call your doctor. A course of antibiotics can help zap this stomach bug for good.

Step 1: Prepare a Shower

As it reads in the title, prepare a hot shower.Not too hot, but as hot as it takes to create steam. Since you have vomited, you probably have it on you… whether it’s in your hair or on your clothes. So, taking a shower serves two purposes in this situation. Those would be: 1. Getting the smell and/ or matter off of you 2. Since there is steam, your sinuses will become a little unclogged, as having vomit up your nose will clog it.

Article SummaryX

To get rid of the smell of vomit from a carpet, try spraying the affected area with water and then brushing a little bit of laundry detergent into the carpet with a stiff-bristled cleaning brush. If you have one, use a shop vacuum to soak up the liquid. If you don’t, use an old towel instead. Another way to get rid of the smell is to mix together baking soda and water until it is the consistency of toothpaste. Apply this mixture to the area and let it sit for 24 hours. The next day, vacuum up the baking soda. For more ways to get rid of carpet odors, like using vinegar, read on!

Do so for however long as you feel necessary. -Afterward, you want to gargle with water in order to make sure all of the mouthwash is cleared out of your mouth along with the flavor from the vomit. *Note: you may need a lot of mouthwash.

When to see your doctor about smelly burps

Most of the time, foul-smelling burps are more of a nuisance than anything else, and making short-term adjustments your diet and popping some over-the-counter antacids should help them go away. However, if you keep having smelly burps despite OTC medication or if they’re associated with other troubling GI symptoms, they are cause for concern, says Dr. Cerrone.

Along with smelly burps, the following symptoms are your cue to call a doctor:

  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Severe abdominal pain or cramping
  • Bloody stool
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Otherwise? Take some antacids to help cut down on your smelly burps and gas, and to prevent them from happening in the first place, make sure to eat slowly, chew your food thoroughly before you swallow, and avoid the foods you know tend to make you super gassy.
