Ulcerative colitis flare-up

12/17/2008

Question:

My 18yr old daughter was diagnosed with UC 2-1/2 yrs ago. She has been in remission but has been having stomach pains recently. When she is having a flare up like this how does she manage the pain she is having at that moment?

Thank you.

Answer:

She can try tylenol. If the pain persists, or she has fever, you should call the doctor who manages her UC for further evaluation.
