  • Drink some water. It will help dilute the acid.

  • AntAcids like Tums create more acid, and why my doctor told me to stop using them, and I'm on a prescription to block acids

    Pepto is the best I found and doesn't bite back later with more acid making you take even more Tums or whatever to stop the next flare

  • Baking soda. There are instructions on the box. Tastes disgusting, but if it's all that's available...

  • Two ways I got rid of it during pregnancy were either, eating some celery, a few chunks should do the trick or if you have apple cider vinegar on hand do a shot of 3parts vinegar and 1part water, it works WONDERS!! GL

  • Drink water. You'll have to drink a lot though because it will keep coming back every so often.
