Crohn's Disease / Ulcerative Colitis board


Did your boyfriend take any antibiotics recently, such as Erythromycin or a quinolone such as Avelox, Levaquin, or Cipro. Maybe for a sinus infection or UTI?

These medications can cause colitis (temporary) and something called c-diff. The bacteria in the digestive tract grows out of control, causing diarhea, pain, and even bleeding. This can go on for months unless treated.

It is another thing to check into.
