Erotic gastritis of the stomach is acute and chronic, with elevated or normal acidity. In this case, various parts of the mucous membrane of the stomach are damaged, with the formation of foci of inflammation and erosion. Erosion - a small visible damage to the mucosa, they often bleed may be damaged gastric juice or hard food particles. The cause of erosive gastritis may be the use of alcohol, painkillers and some other drugs, corrosive chemicals. A characteristic symptom is ulcer-like pain, including hunger and nocturnal pain.
Acute erosive gastritis begins sharply, a few hours after the exposure of the causative agent. The patient's condition is deteriorating rapidly, there is pain and heaviness above the navel, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness and weakness. A person becomes pale, his or her troubles dryness in the mouth or vice versa, salivation. Such a patient should be urgently sent to a hospital.
Chronic erosive gastritis proceeds easier, and some teens may occur covertly, without any symptoms, only occasionally giving heartburn. But this disease is insidious, it gives frequent aggravations and is badly treated. The reason for this is some provocative factors, which again and again lead to aggravation, and they can not be eliminated. Chronic erosions can last for a long time, from several weeks to several years.

And here it was not without a harmful bacterium helikobakter. This bacterium changes the composition of the gastric mucus, which ceases to protect the shell of the stomach from damage, and erect the gums, preventing their healing. In addition, the bacterium secretes toxic products of its life. There is evidence that Helicobacter pylori inevitably leads to ulcers and, ultimately, to stomach cancer.
Another most common cause is duodenal-gastric reflux, through which the contents of the duodenum are thrown into the stomach, eating its walls, and the stomach contents, in turn, falls into the duodenum, also damaging it. Thus gastroduodenal erosions are formed. They are located closer to the exit from the stomach in the intestine, in the antral (pyloric) department, in the sphincter bulb and in the duodenum.
Sometimes gastric erosion is caused by hormonal disorders, more often it concerns the hormones of the thyroid and pancreas. Many researchers consider the causes of erosion high acidity of gastric juice and a decrease in immunity. There are other causes of erosion formation.
