How often does the stomach lining replace itself?

The reason why the stomach lining keeps replacing itself, every 3 to 4 days,  is that it would, otherwise,  dissolve due to our strong digestive acids.  An ulcer is when the stomach acids burn through the lining quicker than it can replace itself. Ouch!!
