Sulfur Burps - Cure, Treatment, Causes, Symptoms

Sulfur Burps

When you have excess air in your stomach, it usually comes out as a burp. Usually the burp will have a smell of the food that you ate, but sometimes it will come out smelling like rotten eggs. This is a condition that is known as sulfur burp, and they can be very embarrassing and unpleasant, especially if they happen in the presence of others.

The real reason why the burp smells so badly is hydrogen sulfide (H2S). If you eat foods that have sulfur proteins in them then you may find yourself burping the H2S, which will smell like rotten eggs. The sulfur reducing microbes in the intestine digest the proteins and release the gas.

People of all ages can expel H2S when they burp, and this is especially common in pregnant women. During pregnancy the digestive process slows down, and this may be the reason why it is common. If sulfur burping comes with diarrhea, or vomiting, then you should see a doctor immediately, since these are the first signs of irritable bowel syndrome.

What are the causes of sulfur burps?

The first cause could be an infection in your gastrointestinal tract (GIT)  caused by the Helicobacter pylori bacteria. This can cause gastric problems, heart-burn, bloating sensation in the upper abdomen and sulfur burps. Another reason is through a parasite called Giardia found in water bodies.   This is a parasite and causes people to have sulfur burps.  The parasite can lead to the development of ulcers, abdominal cramps, diarrhea and vomiting.  Both  Helicobacter pylori and Giardia infect humans through poor hygiene, oral-fecal transmission, and untreated water.

Another cause is improper eating patterns. If you eat heavy protein meals and sugary foods, then these may lead to you having sulfur burps. Since heavy protein meals stay longer in the stomach and intestine, you may find a larger amount of H2S building up in your GIT. Once the gasses reach a certain amount they will leave the body as burps with a rotten egg smell.

Prescription medicines have also been known to cause this condition. If the medicine contains sulfur then there are high chances of emitting H2S in your burps.

Another cause is a condition known as Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). There is a delicate balance that prevails in the intestine of the flora or bacteria found there. Someone with Celiac or Crohn’s disease may have a larger amount of bacteria which leads to sulfur burps.

Are there foods that cause sulfur burps?

In order to avoid getting sulfur burps, you should not eat certain foods at certain hours of the day. Several foods cause this condition to occur. High protein foods are the largest culprits when it comes to producing sulfur burps. This is because the food will stay in the stomach for longer as the protein is digested. The result is excess H2S coming out of your mouth. Sometimes the burps are so subtle that people may find it hard to identify who is burping if you have to be in a crowd.

You should avoid foods such as Garlic, Onions, Tomatoes, Broccoli, Whey protein, peas, Sweet potatoes, Asparagus, Cabbage, beans, soy, etc. You should also avoid red meats, canned foods, eggs and dairy products. Avoid cola, coffee and tea. Also avoid cashew nuts, bananas and coconuts.

How do you treat/avoid sulfur burps?

  • You should increase your intake of water since this will help in digesting the proteins.
  • You should avoid foods that have a lot of sugar.
  • You should slow down on alcohol intake.
  • In order to detox your gut, you should take herbal teas.
  • Avoid carbonated drinks which will only serve to increase the burping.
  • You should take high fiber foods which help in digestion.
  • You should stop taking foods that are ready-to-eat or canned.
  • If you take a glass of warm water with honey and lemon every morning, then you remove the chance that you will develop sulfur burps during the day.
  • Half teaspoon of baking soda mixed in a little glass of water can also help tide over the embarrassing problem. Do not take it on a full stomach. Pregnant women, those on sodium-restricted diet and children should check with a doctor before taking the concoction. Do not consume baking soda with antacids.
  • You should talk to your doctor if the condition persists, or comes frequently. Pepto-Bismol works by binding the H2S, thereby eliminating sulfur burps. It is indicated to be given for adults and children above 12 years of age. There is a specific Children’s Pepto Antacid for those below 12.  One may find black stool or black tongue after taking this medication, this is because the active ingredient involved is bismuth, which combines with sulfur in your burps and gastrointestinal track and forms black-colored matter called bismuth sulfide. The ‘black color’ is harmless and transient. It may even last for some days after you stop Pepto-Bismol, and eventually go away.
  • If there is a bacterial overgrowth in your GIT then you should take some antibiotics, after checking with a doctor.
  • If you happen to be taking medication with sulfur, you can ask your doctor for an alternative treatment.
  • Conditions such as Crohn’s disease should be treated or managed.
  • You should also try to remove sulfur proteins from your diet.

All in all, it is a good idea to talk to your doctor whenever you experience sulfur burps. Although the condition may be an innocent occurrence, you should not ignore it if it happens for more than a day, or occurs frequently. If you are developing irritable bowel syndrome, then you should get help immediately. Otherwise try some of the home remedies mentioned above before you visit a doctor.

    • Sara

      This did not help me I need a fast remody that would work in a few minutes because not everyday I have the time do can you please have a quick homemade re most
      I would appreciate that a lot THANK YOU

      • Devin

        Put a tablespoon into 8 Oz of cold water for almost instant relief

      • Carrie

        They told you pepto bismol helps…and it does. I’ve dealt with these burps for years. Pepto is the only thing that helps when I get them.

      • yes please! i’ve had these for the past 24hiurs, and they will not go away. also sxperiencing diahrea, and nausea, but not vomitting. my stomach feels as if it’s filled with menthol. also really gassy.

        • Gassie

          I’m having this same thing right now

        • Tamara

          My daughter has been suffering from this for three years and we have seen Dr after Dr and Gastroenterologist who believes it to be Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth and wants to give her antibiotics all the time which does help but I don’t believe that is the reason as it keeps happening. I would really appreciate any answers.

          • COREY J. LEETH

            Try lifeway. Activia. Anything with probiotics. I’ve had them for some time. The probiotics seem to even me out.

          • Brokenchimeara

            My wife was diagnosed with celiac several years ago and when she cheats on her diet she suffers from sulphur burps check it to a possible gluten allergy.

      • Unknown

        Pepto bismol makes mine go away day 1. Its gross but works on these

      • Nico

        Pepto-bismol and gas relief (Simethicone) is my quick remedy for my egg burps as I have grown accustomed to them every month or so, sucks I know… I’m also only 24

      • Hayley

        No, you need to go to the doctor for proper treatment.

      • C.

        1. Induce vomiting.
        2. Drink 8oz water.

        I have found that there is food “digesting” in my stomach and has not passed on to my intestine. This clears it quickly and provides liquid to “moisten” whatever is left to allow it to pass on.

        Skip a meal afterward.

    • lisa

      Aurg egg burps. I get them once to twice. Pepto is the only thing that works and it works almost instantly. Darn I don’t have any ….long night

  2. Rose

    Eat a plain Mc Vities digestive biscuit!! That temporariley sorted me out until I can find a permament solution within a couple of minutes.

  3. katie

    take alka-seltzer or just use a tsp of baking soda in a large glass of water, should take less than an hour :)

    • Stacey baxter

      The baking soda Dissolved In water (a tablespoon)is a true life.saver! But.stand in the bathroom :) was rid.of those.nasty things in about 30-45 mins

  4. Fred

    Ive had sulfur burps for about 4 months and has been making me feel ill.it literally brings me down.

  5. Alison Brittain

    Very good information, as I had indeed wondered the same thing about rotten smelling burps a few weeks back. However, you say “The first cause could be an infection in your gastrointestinal tract (GIT). This kind of infection is caused by the Helicobacter pylori bacteria, also known as Giardia.”

    Giardia and H. pylori are two separate entities. One is a bacteria, one is a parasite. Giardia, the protozoan parasite, can cause sulfur smelling burps (the rotten egg burps)- by a means that we don’t really yet understand.

    The most common cause of sulfur burps, according to my medical professors, is what’s called gastroparesis. Gastroparesis occurs when food essentially stalls moving through the digestive system, particularly in the stomach. Here, stomach acids have a longer time to break down proteins into smaller pieces, one such piece being hydrogen sulfide which produces the rotten egg smell.

    Gastroparesis can be caused by a number of things (Giardia NOT being one, yet it still causes sulfur burps??). Among them are the inflammatory bowel diseases (including Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis), H. pylori infections, GERD, narcotics and hypnotics. There has been very little research to support the idea that sulfur-containing drugs cause sulfur burps.

    Hope that helps!

    • Anna

      Awesome. I get these on and off quite frequently. I don’t believe it’s bacterial or parasitic. I am careful of my hygiene as my dad is a transplant and we all make sure not to expose him to any bacteria, etc. however, I do have gastroparesis. I don’t take reglan bc of all the severe possible side effects.. Don’t get me wrong, I take several medications. I just don’t want one that could cause TD sxs. Thanks for the insight

    • Tammi Miller

      Thanks for the info. I have severe gastroparesis. This makes more sense than what they said above. I’ve mentioned this to my Dr’s ( egg burps) and they had zero clue as to what I was talking about lol. Thanks again!

  6. Tom

    So I got food poisoning and was bed ridden for 2 days. After the weakness wears off I have sulfur burps and some bloating for most of the day. Then the nasty diarrhea hits. I haven’t eaten that much in the past 2-3 days. What should I do?

    • terrie

      Same thing happened to me. I was told my gallbladder needed to come out.a year later still having the same problem almost daily
      .

    • Anonymous

      I’m no doctor but I hope this takes those nasty burps
      How about

      Apples-I hear apples take those upset burps and stomachs

      Toast-toast helps a lot (preferably white bread)

      Bananas-i know a lot of people may not like bananas to much but please 95th it,it seems to work well

      Mint-Peppermint seems to work very well try peppermint tea or just eat a peppermint

      TIPS:
      PROS
      Relax-relax don’t get anxious lay down and test for a little while try a nap also

      Hydration-Drink water and also get some ginger soda shake it up ginger helps a lot

      CONS:
      Don’t get anxious when you get anxious your nerves tell your brain that your not feeling well and your brain signals your body that you want to vomit

      Hope this helps sorry if it doesn’t

      • Kameca B

        But the article clearly states to stay away from bananas.

      • Thatguywasatroll

        Hey I’m pretty sure this was a troll comment, so maybe don’t take this advice…

        • Breanna

          Actually, they were posting about the BRAT diet, which many docs recommend. I don’t think they were trying to intentionally hurt or troll anybody, just help. Their comment about anxiety is spot on, though. Anxiety can exacerbate stomach problems.

  7. Thanks for the article I was wondering what caused these. I had never had sulfur burps in my life until a few weeks ago, they are pretty nasty!

  8. Brittany

    As soon as the “sulfur burps” begin take a big dose of Pepto Bismol (max strength is even better) and I promise you it will stop IMMEDIATELY I promise!!

    • Amber

      Thank u very much!!! The pepto actually worked! It helped the nausea and got rid of those nasty sulfer rotten egg burps! Should of tried a long time ago, just assumed I couldn’t hold anything down though. Thanks again!!

    • Tried your tip worked almost as soon as I took it. Thank you

  9. Jessi T

    I started today for the first time ever with these gross burps. I did not know what else to describe them as but nasty fart burps as my stepson calls them. Ive tried pretty much everything. Milk, the liquid stuff like tums, bread, Gatorade, flavored coffee. but still having them for almost 18 hours now. It also doesn’t help that Saint Mary came knocking yesterday and I feel blah as it is. Anything else I can try?

  10. Tony

    I have had this crap for atleast 3/4 months straight. Every time I go to the doctor they day stomach virus. I call there bull shit. I can’t stand being sick.

  11. My friend has been getting these “HORRIBLE” BURPS off and on for MONTHS NOW! They are SO GROSS!!! It stinks up the entire house and I know he can’t help it but doesn’t know what to do to stop them! He is in BAD health so we thought maybe “probiotics” would help but no such luck! I will read him (or show him) this website and HOPEFULLY one of the things mentioned will help!!!

  12. Joanne

    I keep getting these eggy burps with diarear . im sick to death! I work in a care home and going to toilet every ten minutes isnt good. Im going to try the plain digestive biscuits trick and pepto bismol… Ive tried mints to make my burps smell… Mintier lol.. Works a little bit but not alot. I had this last week and my manager wouldnt let me go home :( burping all day on a 12 hour shift! Day of hell…. At work in 3 hours.. Managers not in either… He didnt understand when i said sulpher burps! And hes a nurse apparently lol

    • Angel

      Been having this problem off and on for several months. My doctor has me scheduled for a colonoscopy this month to check for Chron’s disease, says it’s either that or IBS. However now my husband has them too??? So I don’t see how that’s possible unless we’re both very unlucky!

  13. Jamie C

    I have had these sulfur burps off and on for the past 4 years. I always get sharp gas pain in my stomach and intestinal area. I have had IBS for the past 18 years and my doctors are giving me anything for it. I have been tested for everything under the sun with regards to gastro problems and nothing is wrong. I have constant bloat which gets worse when I have these sulfur burps. The one thing I wondered was how I could get them if I wasn’t eating anything out of the ordinary. I get so nauseous and it feels like I am constipated but I am not. The Pepto Bismal MAX works the best but the regular pepto bismal also works well, just takes an extra day or so. I’m still trying to figure out where this is coming from. I just wish I knew what ws causing it and why I have had it for about 4 years off and on. They are THE WORST!!!!

  14. John

    Powerade Zero works for me.

  15. Lance

    Dealt with this situation most of my life. As a young boy, I could almost always count on waking up in middle of night every few months with these sulphur burps followed by violent vomiting and diarrhea. Then in my 20s, a doctor suspected “dairy” as the culprit. After stopping milk, ice cream, and limiting cheese, I thought I had it figured out. Years went by….But in my mid 40s, bad things have started happening again…..2 bouts of diverticulitis, a bleeding ulcer, just in past year. Can’t help but think it all kinda ties in together. When I had that first burp last night, dread consumed me cause I knew what I was in for….Resting today, was a long night.

    • T

      Have your doctor check you for the H-pylori bacteria. Since you had an ulcer, this could be the culprit.

    • This is exactly how I am too! Starts off with sulphur burps, then in the middle of the night I’m on the loo with a bowl being violently ill. I try downing gaviscon, it helps sometimes. I’ve had 7 bouts of this nastyness in the last 2 months.

  16. Good health

    People don’t experience a smelly burp that stinks like sulfur or rotten egg. Eating High protein food will not cause Stinky Burps…Everyone do eat meats and Eggs are really good for health.. What nonsense you writing about… people need to eat meat. Of course need to eat fruits to digest it. Even if people cannot digest well, their burp is NOT smelly at all If you have no knowledge, please don’t write rubbish in the web.

    and what embarrassment….Everyone do Burp. and it wont make you smell… If they don’t like, ask them to F back to their cave. We Asians do that very often whenever, wherever and however we like… This is God’s creation. We Asian like to eat garlic onions.. etc If you don’t like the smelll, don’t come to asia. You thought what.. you American high class? Stupid standard..

    • Mary White

      Obviously, you seem too have some kind of issues of your own going on there…it’s called IGNORANCE!!! If you took the time to actually read through what has been posted and also took the time to actually read up on the subject you would find out that what people are posting are facts about the subject. As far as Garlic and Onions go in your post…sorry to burst your bubble but it’s not only Asians that eat them, try the majority of the world. get over yourself.

    • Alex

      If you have nothing to add to this discussion, go outside and play. Or do your homework, just go away.

    • Steve

      I only hope and pray that you start having this happen to you — weekly. Please don’t try any sensible cures, just plenty of onions & garlic. Have fun! And I agree with Alex. Just go away.

    • EM

      HAHAHHAAAA!
      You are talking rubbish! But then again, a lot of us on this particular page looking up these symptoms have been, for a different sulphuric reason.
      Garlic and onion might not do anything to your gastric system, since you have decided to take this part as an attack on your geographical situation, but it might affect other people. It seems you might need to have less, for they seem to have given you a case of arrogantlittleshitis, and possibly a bout of racism.
      I would also hold off the raw mooli, if I were you. It makes you smell like copper, you know, just in case the ENTIRE Internet had not detected where you were in the world, since it seems we have all decided to seek you out of Asia, with you being so important and all.
      Thank you however, for the belly laugh, for it seems I managed to exhale a few extra bubbles of sulphur which have been bugging me for the past few hours. Hence my presence on this page.
      Now will you please go play with toys your age, I don’t know, water bombs and a pitchkari, maybe?

      • G

        I have been miserable with these damn burps, nausea, diarrhea, and vommiting for months.. But you’re comment actually made my day better. thanks.

    • David

      If you have never experienced this, then you can’t possibly have knowledge of it. The ignorance an arrogance in your comments are disturbing.

    • You have no idea what your talking about I am sitting here with a 6 year old that is experiencing it and let me tell you it’s no fun

    • CC

      Your a special kind of stupid. My 13yo. Son has been sick for 12 hrs worth these symptoms and toss is only 1 episode out of 12 a year at least. We’ve been to the ER for dehydration more times than I can count from him throwing up due to the disgusting taste of his burps and the diarrhea. You are uneducated and need to shut up about something you know nothing about. It’s Real. Real people have it. My son also has achalashia. I’m curious to know if anyone else here does because every time I take him to drs for this they assure me it’s that flaring up. I disagree but I’m no doctor.

    • This is not made up stuff these burps are horrible tasting and smelling definitely not caused from garlic. The smell is what makes them so embarrassing. U obviously never suffered from

  17. Eric

    I had these this morning. They usually come with too much intake of pepperoni or something too spicy. My entire family has had a 12-24 hr stomach bug. I didn’t have any vomiting or diarrhea but I got these nasty sulfur burps. It had been awhile. I tried something new, soon as I realized I had them I jumped out of bed and took a cocktail of Tums, Pepto tablets and Emertrol which is for nausea and upset stomachs. The combination of the chalky tablets and coating of the emertrol kicked it in bout 30 mins. Timing is key, first onset you have to act.

  18. I have just started getting sulfur burps and farts, with bloating. I was sent home with a stool collection kit for diarrhea, but it stopped. Sulfur burps and farts though haven’t stopped yet. Was taking care of puppy with protozoa, and parasites though and started new meds. Hope to figure what issue is.

  19. Kaitlyne

    I really hope this will work cause the only way I could get rid of it was to vomit twice and I hate it if had this since I was 5 or so and its horrible my mom has GERD so I’m really glad I found this

  20. Jessica

    Fantastic answer! Ty!

  21. Sherry

    The backing soda worked, Just make sure you stay near a bathroom.

  22. Serena

    Me and both my sisters have experienced these most of our lives. I remember sitting in church and my sister would tap me on the shoulder and I’d turn around and she’d let a stinky burp in my face. Of course I couldn’t do anything about it seeing as we were supposed to be quiet. I’m in my 40′s now and I seem to be getting these more and more often. I’m on Prednisone, and it seems to aggravate it. I agree on the Pepto Bismol, it’s the only thing that works. They’re quite embarrassing.

    • Does any one know why you can not take pepto bismol if you take aspirin.thank you. Karen A.

      • Jennifer RN

        I wouldn’t recommend at same time because pepto will bind with aspirin and make it in effective but taking pepto 2 hours before or 2 hours after would be fine. Jenn RN

        • Jennifer RN

          Actually I was wrong I forgot that pepto has an aspirin base so you shouldn’t take this product if you are taking aspirin at all. Liquid Rolaids, gaviscon or even the children’s pepto (contains no aspirin) would be okay for you.

    • C hart

      I had them a lot as a kid. My granddaughter has them now. Does Mylanta work as well as pepto?

      Oh, Serena, I know they’re awful, but your post made me laugh so hard I cried! Thanks.

  23. David

    I have also had this condition. Mine is always followed by vomiting and diarrhea. I must be honest here. It seems to follow after smoking pot, and pigging out late at night. I think laying down right after eating doesn’t allow it to digest, so it rots and makes me sick. As soon as the first burp,I know I’m going to be sick

    • Chris

      OMG! This is exactly what I’ve been thinking. If I do not eat anything for like 4 hours before laying down, I am fine, but if I smoke and get the munchies it happens almost every time. Glad you pointed it out, I even had the theory of the food rotting in my gut, haha even if I eat fruit when I burp it taste fermented like wine or cider…

    • jaret

      I get the same exact thing

  24. Anthony MazzOne

    This did not help I need something at home I can use to make this go away. I have gone through this and I’ve also puked many times and it’s the worst. Burps smell like rotten eggs and poo, so terrible..

  25. Ramiro

    Will probiotics help?

  26. Kathy Jess

    I have very good hygiene, but have poor eating habits this is only the second time I’ve ever gotten this,reading everyone’s comments was helpful so thank you too everyone who shared.I guess my only question would be since I’ve waited almost 24hrs to take action other than tums.would peto be too late too try? And how long does this nasty rotten egg burp take to go away?

  27. Anonymous guy

    Been dealing with this problem the past 5 years of my life. It seems to only happen during a certain part of the year and doesn’t last long, but it always happens and is very annoying to deal with.

    I always thought it may be a medication slowing my digestion, and the food I’m eating just rots and gives off the gas which ends with me at the toilet with diarrhea and vomiting. I’ve seen doctors a few times for it and they can never figure it out, frustrating.

    One thing that seems to stop it is alka seltzer. Usually takes the gas away, but the diarrhea usually happens no matter what.

    The crazy part is, it only seems to happen when I’m eating healthier foods.

  28. Sheena

    I have been getting them for a few years! And just had my gallbladder taken out in December, had an episode 2 months ago, and tonight had another on they make me feel bloated! I hate them and wish they would stop! Going to my dr tomorrow cause this time I have been sick with dirreah for 6 days and now the burps!! Eeek kinda freaking out over here

    • Jennifer RN

      I had the problem very severely after my gallbladder was taken out. Now I drink kefir (probiotic yogurt) and I only have this problem when I forget to drink it like today!

  29. Linda Turner

    i tried pepto max after suffering for a week. after the first dose ,thuse nasty burps went away

  30. Krystle

    I had my gull bladder removed and I still get them.. the doctor told me I would not get them so often but that is not true.. I cant use Pepto-Bismol because it is Aspirin base.. so what I use is liquid Rolaids ultra strength. That is for people who have allergies to Aspirin.

  31. Wintet

    How much pepto bismol should you drink?

  32. Lisa

    Rantadine really helps me 300 mg sid

  33. Triston Cliburn

    Ok, this article helped me out. Thank you! I ate 2 pieces of steak and a lot if cabbage last night. I usually don’t eat very much at night time, But I couldn’t resist. It was so good! Now I’m paying for it… I use to have these burps And the doctors said I needed my gallbladder removed. Had it removed in February and now this again! Sucks. Now I know not to eat a lot of protein Or cabbage in the evening.

  34. melinda

  35. Bandy

    Dear Fellow sulphur burp sufferers,I am at the moment also suffering(again) I am 55 and have suffered for years on and off with this condition. Having seen my GP he prescribed Lansoprazole 30 mg one tablet twice a day and this seems to help calm things down.these tablets are to help control stomach acid production. Best of luck to everybody,Would appreciate any feed back. (Good or bad) , take care : Bandy Yorkshire

  36. Heather

    I have been experiencing these Gosh awful sulfur bombs (burps), as my mom’s (ages 16 and 14) call them, for almost a week now. I have tries Tums 1000, Reglan, and am getting Pepto tomorrow. I can’t take it anymore, between the burps from hell, and the burning acid-a**… I seriously just can’t take it! I might even try the baking soda remedy tonight for some semblance of relief. Thanks guys for your tips, therapy, and belly laughs at useless people with and no direction.

  37. I’m 19yr old female, and lactose intolerant, I take lactase enzyme pills which means I can happily eat dairy. But every so often (when the pills don’t work I’m guessing) I get sulphur burps, followed by intense stomach cramps, nausea, and diarrhoea for up to 24hrs. I can’t leave my house and the stomach cramps are just so painful!

    The docs think I became lactose intolerant after I had a bug/virus at Christmas time 2 years ago. Before that bug I was completely fine and was able to eat/drink as much dairy as I want!

  38. Rickymo

    I went to a doctor for one problem, while at his office I caught a bug that gave me these nasty sulfur burps the next day. It really freaked me out. I had never even heard of such a thing. I got on here and found where someone said, drink water. I did. I drank enough to push every bit of gas out of my stomach, drank a little more until it almost hurt then went to bed. I had to get up about 4 times during the night to urinate but, in the morning I felt great and no more nasty burps

  39. Ellie

    I’ve been getting this on and off for past 4 years. They have just come on today :( just know I’m in for it feel awful in going to try Pepsi bimbsol in a bit.

    Oh my goodness. I feel so much better since reading all of your comments. I was diagnosed with gastropernesis(sp?) almost a year ago. My burps are terrible all the time. I hate it. I will try the Pepto. I’m sorry we all have to deal with this.

    If your body is healthy in appropriate measures, none of the food items listed as bad should cause any issue. Insist your doctor fix what is broken or refer you to an expert. Something is causing the issue. It’s not as random as we are led to believe.

    I’ve been suffering from these awful sulfur burps off and on for years. Usually brought on by my eating too much Pizza/ sauce or too late in the day. Pesto doesn’t work. Baking soda doesn’t work. Only cure for me is Charco-tabs. 2 capsules every 2 hours until gone.

    I’ve had this condition for my whole life – as long as I can remember- on & off. It is horrible and I’m experiencing it now. I’m going straight to the store for Pepto which I just happen to be out of. First thing today, after Googling the burps, I ordered some capsules for a parasitic cleanse. For some reason, it just seems like this may be the culprit although I am a clean person. I do have a cat and thought there is always the chance… I will post further once I take the pills that should arrive in 2 days. Wish me luck, as I do to all you fellow sufferers. Keep up with the comments because every situation deserves a mention!!

    Kaopectate works wonders! My son was getting sick with these nasty sulfur burps and diarrhea almost weekly for the past 8 months. I believe we narrowed it down to too much sugar intake the day before. He stopped taking his antiacids that the doctor had him taking twice daily 75mg each. (That was not helping) And he slowed his sugar intake. But if he happens to get these nasty burps and diarrhea, he takes one dose of Kaopectate and the sulfur burps are gone immediately and the diarrhea subsides after a couple hours. YAY KAOPECTATE!

  45. So, I tried the baking soda thing and after a few minutes of really large burps and an additional few more ounces of water, things settled down .

    Thank you for having this information my stomach feel much better and i no longer have rancid burps :)

    Hi, I have been having the nasty rotten egg burps and gas for a year or so, on and off. It just comes on like nothing, and is very upsetting, as my kids swear something has died in the house. It’s very sickening, & if you or anyone else hasn’t went thru this, ya shouldn’t poke jokes, one day it may happen to you, just for spite. I have noticed drinking lots more water helps me,it’s almost as tho.it just has to run its course, but in the meantime, it’s just a nuisance with the random burping & tooting. I’ve always wondered if this has anything to do with the liver? Does anyone know? Cuz like the above says high protein foods,but of course it never States what kinda foods,which would be helpful. Thanks. Kristina~
