  • Ulcerative Colitis Flaring Up? ~ Dr. Margarita Murphy

    Ulcerative Colitis flares can be painful and frustrating. Many of those coping with this disease forget that treatment it is an ongoing process making the most common cause of a flare a lapse in treatment.

    Treatment goes beyond keeping up with medications… it also includes managing your stress and proper diet. Many patients are able to manage a flare on their own using over the counter medications, relaxation and a mild diet.

    If you notice your UC symptoms flaring up for longer than 7-10 days it may be a good time to stop by and see us at Colon Surgeons of Charleston. In rare cases ulcerative colitis flares can be a sign of a more complicated medical issue. If you notice thick blood in your stool, run a fever or suffer severe abdominal pain we suggest you give your colon physician a call immediately. Your care is always our top priority.
