How Can You Get Rid Of Rotten Egg Smelling Burps?

How Can You Get Rid Of Rotten Egg Smelling Burps?

Lately I have had VERY nasty rotten egg smelling burps. I have had an excessive amount of gas as well. My abdomen is pretty distended as well, although I had my 3rd baby 6 months ago, but I still look around 5-6 months pregnant.

I've been very tired for a while now. I get these "bouts" of severe cramping diarrhea that come and go for no reason.

I went to my doctor. He tested me for Celiac disease which I tested negative for. I'm supposed to go for a lactose test, but I have a feeling that that's not an issue.

Could I have a parasite? I've also noticed my cat ripping her fur out, and when I did an internet search about it, I read that she could be ripping her fur out because of a parasite.

Also, I'm not sure if this is related...but what about grain beetles? Not sure if there is any truth to this, but I heard that they could be carriers for parasites, and if ingested could be passed onto humans.

Thank you very much...I hope I can figure some things out.

Hi Rena,

It does sound like you've picked up some type of parasitic infection that is affecting your entire digestive system.

It's hard to pinpoint exactly where or how you contracted it. People don't seem to realize how easy it really is to pick up parasites. They really are all over the place in one form or another.

The best thing I would suggest that you do is give yourself a gentle, but very effective, cleanse of your digestive tract. That should take care of the rotten egg smelling burps, too. :-)

Herbal Fiberblend is a combination of psyllium fiber and
17 different herbs that are both anti-fungal and anti-parasitic. You just need to stir a little up in water or juice and take it twice a day. Up your water intake to about 8 glasses per day. That's about it.

I think you will find it will clear up your system in no time at all. (No more rotten egg smelling burps!)

Honestly, though, you'd be wise to use it for a full 3 months. That's what I do each year, whether it 'seems' like I need it or not. It's a great way to help keep your immune system in good order.

As for your cat, you should treat the cat for parasites, too. And be sure to wash your hands after touching the cat, etc. Yes, parasites can be passed from animals to humans.

I don't see why parasites can't be transferred from beetles to humans if they happen to be carrying them. Man doesn't know everything (although we like to think we do). :) But our bodies are made to fight off parasites, bacteria, fungus, etc. and do a pretty good job of it most of the time.

Every now and then, the immune system is compromised by poor diet, antibiotics, other illness, even childbirth, and then it needs a little assistance to get everything moving along smoothly.

I try to use natural remedies like whole food supplements, herbs, vitamins and minerals to keep my body as healthy as possible for the most part. My philosophy is, give the body what it needs, and it will take care of the rest!

Since you are in Canada, you can order Herbal Fiberblend directly from the Canadian office at wholesale prices using this form.

To your good health!

Get Tested for Cancer
by: Anonymous

My wife had that burp and we tried to treat her gut, too. It turned out she had Pancreatic Cancer. This is no joke. The medicines for diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity all work together to greatly increase the possibility of bile duct pancreatic cancer. Better to get tested now, far better, than to not. Sulpher burps were her first symptoms.

Rotten Egg Smelling Burps and Smelly Gas
by: Angie from

Your symptoms may be the result of a reaction to a particular food. My husband (don't tell him I said so) :) has a very smelly reaction to milk and ice cream. No pain, just nasty gas. Small amounts of milk don't bother him (like in a cup of coffee), but if he drinks a whole glass, has a bowl of cereal, etc., we definitely know about it.

If you can't pinpoint a particular food, and because you have such frequent bouts of this, I have to suggest to you as I have to the other readers to try cleansing your digestive tract with Herbal Fiberblend. It really does work great and may completely eliminate your problem.

Happy New Year! :)

Egg Burps Treatment
by: Tessie

I've had the egg-burp, indigestion problem off and on for a year or two. I also had acid reflux. I started using HCL pills with meals (you have to experiment a bit to figure out how much and how often) and I gave up sugar and refined white flour. That mostly cured things. I've tried to wean off the HCL and have managed pretty well but if the egg burps start again this is what I do: After the first egg burp, I take HCL and wait 30 minutes. If I still have them I take a second dose. I've never had to do a third.

I've experienced...
by: Anonymous

egg burps too. I've found that mixing a tsp of baking soda in a half cup of warm water and drinking it gets rid of it. I usually have to do this twice to fully get rid of the egg burps. I notice that it happens when I am severely stressed. You can also try Maalox tablets or Pepcid, but the baking soda should take care of it.

Is it contagious?
by: Angie

Hi Denise,

I'm glad to hear that you are feeling somewhat better, but obviously you are not completely well because your appetite is still affected.

Now that your husband is suffering similar symptoms, it does lead one to believe that you are suffering from a parasite infection that needs to be cleansed from your system fully. You don't want to keep passing it back and forth.

I would suggest as I have to the other above that you BOTH give yourselves a good cleanse with Herbal Fiberblend and begin taking probiotics to replenish the good bacteria in your digestive tract. I prefer Florafood.

A simple course of this regimen should get you both feeling well again and keep you that way.

I had the same horrible thing for over a month,it seemed to last three days which that's when I throw up everything I had ate which is very unpleasant.. But I am better but only eat once a day or just a bite here and there or not at all... Now my husband just got it first time ever so really I'm wondering,What is it and is it contagious??

Rotten eggs burps? Could be Giardia Lamblia
by: Anonymous

Rotten eggs burps?

The smell of sulfur (sulphur) or rotten egg burps comes from hydrogen sulfide (H2S), a gas originating from sulfur-containing proteins in certain foods after they are broken down in the stomach or small intestine by sulfur-reducing microbes. These microbes may be normal intestinal bacteria or pathogenic bacteria.

Fast food meals can be infected by Giardia Lamblia. So, discard the easy one first:
Giardia Lamblia treatment: Tinidazol 2 mg, one take. In children, 50 mg/kg, one take. Talk with your medical doctor or nurse before.


After discarding GL, you can go with the expensive ones:
Talk to your GI, discard: Excess bile. Celiac disease. GI Reflux. Lactose intolerance.
All of these will impact in your diet.

The last one: In case you are Diabetic, see Gastroparesis:

God bless you all

Apple Cider Vinegar
by: Angie

Hi Heather,

You can certainly go and see a doctor if you think it is necessary. It sounds to me like you picked up a bacteria bug that is affecting your digestive tract.

It will probably work its way through your system eventually, but you can help speed up the process and feel better by mixing some organic apple cider vinegar in water (about 1 teaspoon per glass).

Another helpful option would be to mix a teaspoon of turmeric in a glass of water. This is often very effective in stopping diarrhea.

I would also suggest that you get some probiotics if you don't already have some (like acidophilus, etc) so that you can replenish the good bacteria in your digestive tract.

Hoping you feel better soon!

Same thing
by: Heather

I'm 23, I have been feeling weak, tired and sore for the past 3 days, the first day I started feeling like this I had cramps that were aweful, I took a pain reliever and it seemed to take the cramps away, then I wake up the next morning, and I'm so sore, almost like I did an all day workout the day before, and I felt so woren down and tired, then around noon I noticed anything I ate or drank runs right through me, and I started having aweful smelling burps.. Still having all of the things I just mentioned and I'm going on my 4th day.. Should I get checked out by a doctor? or try baking soda and water?... hear that works..?

same boat
by: Tina

God! I'm so grateful to finally know that there are others suffering from the same issue and its nothing higher dangerous. I ate at a restaurant for lunch with my family and stated having the burps and diarrhea this morning. It was a poultry meal but I've had the same issue with purely vegetarian meals so I don't think its a certain food that causes it.I hesitant to eat cause I'll vomit for sure. I hate the smell of the burps and usually pinch my nose hard when and after burping cause I just can handle the repulsive smell. I hope someone finds a permanent medication for this cause I'm tried of seeing a doctor for this

Sick In Bed
by: Angie

Sounds like you need a quick remedy, which is not an easy thing to get. Based on all the things you've described, you should definitely get yourself some Herbal Fiberblend and do a natural cleanse (your dad too).

Meanwhile, for your immediate situation, I would take Vitamin C (5-10 grams per day; no more than 1 gram per hour; 1 gram = 1000 mg) to help clear up the chest infection as well as probiotics (like acidophilus) to support your digestive system.

If you have some organic apple cider vinegar (like Bragg's) that may help relieve your symptoms somewhat before Monday also.

Again, with the issues you are dealing with, you definitely should consider a full cleanse and nutritional support to return your body to full health.

I too ate cereal and then rotten burps
by: Anonymous

I had McDonalds the day before and I have been sick for a week and q half before it though. Earlier today I had cereal and now these terrible burbs and farts. My dad has chrihns disease. I've been in bed all day. Super chest congestion went from head to chest and won't go away. Had a baby 11/2 ago and it was c section. Belly is constantly bloated and I get cramps sometimes not near my menstal cycle. My son had the virus where you wake up every night and puke then have diarrhea for two weeks. He's better, but now I feel miserable. I dont want to go to the dr. My son is having surgery Monday and needs me. Stuck in bed -help!

Oh boy
by: Anonymous

Ya know I thought cars were bad, always needing work. The good thing is thst we were created with amazing desighn, with proper health and care we can heal.

I recognized some of your symptoms that sounded similar to what my father was experiencing. He actually had stage four cancer in his stomach gal bladder liver and intestines. Not to say thats what you have by any means. Just something to watch out for if you dont improve after a cleanse and proper diet for some time.

I am going to do the same. Hope it works for everyone. Parasites are most definetly more common than we realize.

Smelly Burps and Cramping
by: Angie

Hi Renee,

It's this very situation that makes me keep Herbal Fiberblend on hand at all times. It works so well and quickly for relieving intestinal upsets, whether the result of eating something that doesn't set well with you or picking up a bacteria or parasite.

If your daughter continues to have these symptoms, I would suggest you get some HFB so that she can do a cleanse.

In the meantime, I'm trying to think of what you may have on hand that may give her some relief. Do you happen to have any raw apple cider vinegar in the pantry? This would be the organic, unfiltered kind, like Bragg's.

You can pick some up at your local health food store and often at your local grocery store, too, in the health food section.

Stir 1 Tablespoon of the ACV in a glass of water and get your daughter to drink it (twice per day if possible).

Something else that might give her relief is probiotics. I generally suggest Florafood, but you should also be able to pick up some good probiotics locally. These are the good intestinal bacteria like acidophilus, bifidum, and longum. If you can get a combination, even better.

Taking the probiotics 3 times per day should make a difference. I would suggest she do this for a couple of weeks regardless of whatever else she does, to replenish and boost the friendly bacteria in her system.

Crohn's Disease
by: Angie

Hi Amber,

I'm sure it would be possible to have Crohn's Disease, even at 15, but what makes you think that you might have it? What other symptoms have you been experiencing besides the rotten egg smelling burps and the previous high blood pressure?

Your diet can most definitely affect your blood pressure. Have you changed your eating habits in order to see if that straightens out the blood pressure issue?

If you are overweight (by a lot), that can also raise your blood pressure. Apart from diet and exercise, there are also some natural nutritional supplements you can take to help manage your blood pressure if needed.

As for the burps, the gas, and the tummy ache, you may have picked up a parasite (bacteria, etc) or simply be having trouble with your digestive system that can be straightened out by a natural cleanse. I would suggest Herbal Fiberblend and some probiotics like Florafood.

If you would like to give more details regarding your symptoms and what you may have already tried to remedy them, I will try to offer more suggestions if you like.

rotten egg burps
by: Amber

i'm 15 and i've been having these on and off burps all day along with being gassy. i only had a little stomach pain this morning and it went away. The only thing i'm wondering about is can i have crohn's Disease at 15.
In the past i have had some high blood pressure but i only thought that it could be because i was eating a lot of junk food.
I have had some of the symptoms, but i'm still not sure if i should ask my dad to take me to the doctor yet.

Digestive Cleanse
by: Angie

It sounds like in your situation that you would definitely benefit from a digestive cleanse with Herbal Fiberblend.

The loose stools (along with your other symptoms) may be a sign of either parasites or other matter in your bowels that your body is trying to eliminate.

Unfortunately, testing for parasites can be very unreliable. You often have to be tested repeatedly before they show up (particularly with stool testing).

It's really easy to do a cleanse. You just mix a little HFB in water or juice twice per day for several weeks.

I'm wondering why your doctor prescribed Nexium for you if you only have occasional heartburn? Nexium is usually reserved for people who have serious heartburn issues. It's actually one of my pet peeves that they hand out antacids like candy these days. :)

If you haven't tried it already, consider treating your occasional heartburn by sipping a glass of water with a tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar in it. It works great for many people so you may be able to control your heartburn without medication.

You mentioned that cereal sets you off. You could have a food allergy that is causing you to have trouble digesting certain foods. Have you noticed any other foods that trigger an episode?

Prepzymes may also be worth considering. They are digestive enzymes that can be taken with meals to aid in proper digestion of your food.

Hope that helps.

Long time sufferer
by: Anonymous

I have been going through the egg burps for approximately 2 or more years. I had an endoscope done and there wasn't anything wrong with my stomach. My doctor had prescribed me Nexium that she said I would have to take for the rest of my life. I do suffer from the occasional acid reflux too. Unlike some of the other comments I have read I don't suffer from stomach cramps or bloating. I do however have somewhat lose stool with gas along with it the very next day. Usually within a half an hour after I wake up in the morning I am in the bathroom for hours off and on. I found that when I eat cereal, the same day I eat it I have the burps. the burps feel so thick when they come out that it's almost unbearable. Usually I will have a period of almost 2 and a half weeks where the first day will be the burps and the second day will be the loose stool, with the third day bringing relief. But on the forth day the cycle starts all over again with nothing to get rid of it. I am thinking of getting checked for the parasite though. It's my last source of an answer as to what is going on in my body. Along with that test I am going to take a co-worker(who is a LPN) and getting my gall bladder checked as well. Hope I get some answers soon...

Herbal Fiberblend in the UK
by: Angie

Hi Beth,

I think the HFB is a good idea and a great place to start. You can order Herbal Fiberblend in the UK here. A thorough cleanse, which is what I would suggest since you are having these concerns, should be done over three months and will take you through 3 pots of the HFB.

You start out with 1 tsp. morning and evening and gradually increase over a 2 week period up to 1 tablespoon morning and evening. Stay around that amount until you are ready to finish the cleanse and then gradually go back down again in the daily dosage.

This gives your body a chance to adjust to the increase and decrease in the amount of fiber you are taking as well as adjust to the cleansing herbs.

I hope you'll be so kind as to let me know how you progress. I love to get updates! :)

Herbal Fiberblend as a Staple Stand-By
by: Angie

Hi Missy,

I keep Herbal Fiberblend as a staple stand-by in my house. I used HFB for a good 3 month cleanse, but now I just always keep a pot on hand so that I can take some at the first sign of stomach upset, constipation, or even to ward off the common cold or flu if I've been around someone who isn't well.

I don't like the taste, but I love the results. I don't know any reason why you couldn't use Herbal Fiberblend, even with a heart condition. It's a wonderful way to keep your digestive system running smoothly and allow your body to absorb extra nutrition.

Build Up Your Good Bacteria
by: Angie

Hi Mondre`

My mother and I were just talking last week about the quality of ice from public ice machines. She always asks for her iced tea or soft drinks with no ice.

My husband adores ice and I have to admit, I do enjoy my cold drinks pretty cold. :-)

You're right about taking preventive steps to improve your immune system. You can build up your good bacteria in your body very easily by taking probiotics (the good bacteria your body needs) like Florafood

I'd also say that if you don't give your body a regular colon cleanse detox (maybe once a year), it's a good idea to do so.

Since I started using Herbal Fiberblend as a regular cleanse, I've noticed that I seem to get 'sick' far less often.

A digestive colon cleanse is really such an easy thing to do to improve (and improve) your health, I honestly don't know why I didn't start years ago with an annual cleanse.

:-) With age comes wisdom, I guess!

egg smelling burps and upset stomach
by: mondre'

my 12yr old calls them the froggie burps, meaning they come out quick, frequent and frog sounding. They also smell like rotten eggs and your stomach feels like cramps with food sitting at the top of your stomach that wont process down. Usually lasting for 14-20hrs before it feels better as long as you dont eat any other food or drink during this time. I get this situation often but I know what it comes from. For me its ice that has been stored in a place near other frozen foods or in a industrial maker where the machine is not cleaned on a frequent basis. The ice collects a airborn bacterica from sharing common space and then when placed in a beverage it starts to desolve along with the bacteria it collected. Out of 10 people that may have a beverage with the same ice in it, I would more then likely be the only one who gets sick from it. My guess is I dont have strong enough fighting agents in my system to fight off the bacteria. Problem is I know how I get this condition but because I like ice and other frozen food items I dont always know the history of it before I take it in. I just wonder what I can do to build up whatever I need to in my system to fight off the bacterica should I not see it coming

Helicobacter pylori
by: Angie

Hi Amy,

Helicobacter pylori (H. plyori) is a bacteria parasite that takes up residence in your stomach lining and can cause all kinds of unpleasant symptoms, from minor to very serious.

It's very easy to pick up parasites or bacteria in your every day activities. So you really could have gotten it almost anywhere, regardless of your age.

If you were diagnosed with H. pylori, I expect that your doctor probably prescribed antibiotics to you. That seems to be their usual first solution.

They have had some success with antibiotics, but if you do take them, be sure to also take some probiotics, like Florafood to replace the good bacteria in your digestive tract. Otherwise you may end up with additional problems from the antibiotics.

As I recommended to Rena, it's a good idea to cleanse your system regularly of parasites and toxins using an all natural digestive cleanse. It really does make a wonderful difference in your health. Herbal Fiberblend is the best natural cleanse I know of for that purpose.

Because you ARE young, it's even more important to take good care of your health. If you don't, you may end up suffering needlessly for years to come.
