Welcome To Health Care Magic,
Ulcerative colitis is the chronic inflammation of the large intestine.Ulcers and inflammation of the inner lining of the colon leads to the symptoms of -abdominal pain,dirrahoea and rectal bleeding.
The cause of ulcerative colitis is unknown but it may be due to the abnormal activation of the immune system in the intestines.
Both medications and surgery are used in the treatment.Surgery is for the people with severe inflammation and life threatning complications.
Diet suggestions include-eat small amount of food throughout the day, drink small amount of water throughout day, avoid fatty ,greasy and fried food, limit milk products.
U have not mentioned wheter the symptoms are less or severe.mild symptoms are easily controlled by anti inflammatory drugs.apart from this you can take homoeopathic treatment .
Take care

Thanks for writing to us.
Ulcerative colitis in a child usually presents with frequent bowel disturbances, alternating constipation and diarrhea, vomiting, distension, etc.
The disease modifying drugs and symptomatic management is usually the best way to treat till the acute episode resolves.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
