Erythema in lay man terms indicates - redness, which can be due to irritation or inflammation.

Within the gastric mucosa, erythema would be a indicator of gastritis, which is indicative of gastric mucosal damage as a result of excess acid secretion or factors like H Pylori infection.

Consult your doctor or gastroenterologist who can provide you a opinion specific to your case.
