Erythematous = red: Erythematous simply means red. The most common reason is due to increased blood flow as part of an inflammatory process. Rectal erythematous mucosa also called a proctitis caused by sexually transmitted diseases, inflammatory bowel diseases, infections and radiation therapy. Rec.: see a proctologist for further investigation.
