Treatment for belching?

My cousin is having a problem with frequent belching. Every minute he feels an amount of air rising up his throat and belches. He as well feels a small burn feeling on his throat, which i assume may be a bit of his stomach acid as his belching may be pumping some acid in his throat. Sometimes bits of his acid would reach to his nostrils and mouth, which he quickly swallows back and cant spit it out. Is this like a heartburn or something? How can he get it to stop or reduce it? Some kind of medication?

    Those bits of acid that reach up his esophagus are called acid reflux. The belching would be linked to this as well. It usually means that a change in diet is required, although it can be difficult to tell what needs to be changed. I had this a few years ago and I cut dairy out of my diet and I no longer experience it. He could experiment with cutting different foods out, although it'll take a long time and he may not draw any conclusions from it. I recommend he see a doctor and they will likely give him a set of blood tests to be done.

    Sounds like Acid Reflux. i would suggest Zantac  but it was taken off the shelves last fall apparently causes cancer. Not sure if it's been replaced Ask a pharmacist or your doctor if there's something similar.
