Hi thanks for asking question.
You have bloody stool in past.It may be due to amebic or shigella dysentry.
You have diagnosed non specific colitis and now you have no problem.So nothing to worry about it.
This bloody stool may be because of thyphoid ulcer bleed or dysentry.
So just now you just do your stool examination for further confirmation.
Avoid excess spicy food for few days.
Drink more water and shift your diet for few days with fruits more and green leafy vegetables.
So just now no worry.If symptoms apprear again then we will decide about to whether start treatment or not.
Thanks. I hope i have solved your query.
