Hello doctor,

I have ulcerative colitis for more than two months. I pass more than seven stools a day (loose stools). Constant bleeding before every stool from the rectum. Fever, rapid heartbeat, and anemia. And have a fungal infection, taking medicine too.

Do you have a question on Ulcerative Colitis or Steroids?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

For ulcerative colitis, an anti-inflammatory drug like Sulfasalazine group of drugs can be started. (In a severe case, Steroid can be prescribed for a short duration). Immunosuppressive drugs prescribed if needed. Anti-diarrheal medication also can be prescribed to decrease diarrhea frequency. Your anemia is because of constant bleeding in the stool.

For that, Iron medication like Ferrous Ascorbate can be started. All these medications are taken regularly and even if still no improvement then surgical management can be done. Consult gastroenterologist for examination and accordingly get prescription. Take care.
