It may be due to bacillary dysentery or amoebic dysentery. Other possibilities like inflammatory bowel problems or polyps etc.

Use tablet ofloxacin and ornidazole. Use sporulac. If symptoms do not improve get it done a colonoscopy and consult your gastroenterologist he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello, Dr. Grief. For the past 5 or 6 weeks, I have been experiencing strange rashes on certain parts of my body. I am currently taking Lialda for an inflammatory bowel condition. I ve been taking it for a bout 21/2 years. It usually goes and comes, but recently, (for about 4 days), it has appeared in the inside of my elbow bend in both arms. I took Benedryl gfor a few days, but it didn t seem to help. Then I tried the proverbial creams, with no help. I intend to make a visit to my gastrologist in another week. Do you have any advice on this type of skin rash? Jeanette F.

Hi, I have a swollen FOOT AND ANKLE with redness all over the foot. It is very sore and painful, especially when the swelling increases. My SKIN there is very warm and painful to the touch. When my foot and ankle get very large from the swelling, it is extremely painful, and I can not walk. Also, there are red spots all over BOTH of my calves. The spots look like bursted blood vessels. Some of the larger spots have pain and soreness along with swelling. I am 52 years old and I have ulceric colitis . I take asacol daily for this. I have been taking asacol daily since 2006. I was diagnosed with the disease in 1988. I have an annual colonoscopy , and to date everything is fine. I don t know if the problem with my foot is related. The problem with the foot swelling appeared in the summer of 2012, and is back again now. Please give me an idea of what this could possibly be, or a list :) Thank you, TTS
