Hello, the condition you are suffering from is ulcerative colitis. It is an inflamatory bowel disease. Multiple ulcers are present in colon. This condition is highly influenced by diet & more than the drugs, dietary factors play an important role in the management of this problem.
Alcohol results in relapse of the condition & hence it is recurring for you.
Vegaz is Mesalamine used in the treatment of mild ulcerative colitis. Acts by inhibiting the production of substances like prostaglandins & cytokines that cause inflamation.
Well, you should avoid spicy food, alcohol, caffiene, meat & diary products.
Diet rich in complex carbohydrates & protein, soy products & whole grain is helpful.
