The source of infection of Helicobacter pylori is mainly human to human, human to animal (cats, dogs, pigs).

There are many causes of gastritis in children, among which Helicobacter pylori infection is one of the important causes. Helicobacter pylori is mostly infected in childhood. Once infected, it will carry the bacteria for several decades, and the natural eradication rate is low. Children's gastritis and peptic ulcer are often ignored by their parents because of their atypical symptoms.
