What Are the Signs of Infectious Gastritis?

Submitted by on September 29, 2011 – 12:05 amNo Comment

Infectious gastritis occurs when an individual gets infected by bacteria variety called Helicobacter pylori, which is commonly referred to as H. pylori. Helicobacter pylori works by attacking our stomach lining and eventually results in formation of inflammation and ulcers. In this article we’ll be discussing about the possible symptoms of infectious gastritis.

Some patients with infectious gastritis do not experience any symptom of the condition. However, due to inflammation of stomach lining, the stomach of these patients produces less mucus, enzymes and acid.

However, majority of the individuals suffering from this gastritis type develop some specific symptoms. They are:


Stomach pain is one of the most frequently occurring signs of infectious gastritis. Generally, the pain and associated discomfort occurs in the patient’s upper abdomen. The pain might be dull or sharp in nature. People experiencing stomach discomfort due to infectious gastritis may have a burning or gnawing sensation within the stomach.

Vomiting and nausea:

Inflammation of the stomach lining might make infectious gastritis patients suffer from vomiting and nausea. The more severe form of gastritis i.e. erosive gastritis might also result in formation of open wounds within the patient’s stomach. One of the common signs of wound causing infectious erosive gastritis is blood or a coffee like substance in vomits. Individuals with infectious gastritis usually experience loss of appetite. The more will be the episodes of vomits and nausea experienced by a gastritis patient, the more will be the decrease in his appetite. The combination of all these signs of the condition makes the patient suffer from bloating, belching and weight loss.

Bowel symptom:

Erosive infectious gastritis might cause tarry, black stool. This sign indicates that gastritis has damaged the patient’s upper digestive tract. The patient might also find presence of blood having bright red color in his stool. This indicates occurrence of erosion or ulcer in the lower part of his digestive tract. The other bowel symptoms observed in patients with infectious gastritis include constipation and diarrhea.
