Well at times I used to have flare ups when I went for blood tests or had too much stress because of profession or personal reasons. In so far as your query is concerned, the answer is YES. Turmeric gets into the whole system and goes down to the Colon. You must have read that Turmeric is very good and lots of tests have shown that it may be useful for treatment of colon cancer. The problem with other oral medicines is that none of them is able to reach the lower portion of the colon, but Turmeric reaches those levels. You try Turmeric orally for a couple of days. I am sure it would help. Take turmeric empty stomach in the morning and try not to eat anything for at least half an hour so that it reaches /travels down to the GI tract. Please keep me posted. In case it does not help then we will consider having Turmeric Enema (diluting/dissolving fresh turmeric paste in water and after sieving the same taking as enema). I had tried Pyllium Husk enema/poppy seed enema. But I am sure turmeric enema should help without any side effects. Can you believe I use another very strong natural antiseptic i.e, Neem leaves in boiled water for all skin irritations/bum irritation/anal soreness. Let me find the English/Medical name of Neem tree. It is a blood purifier. It is a little bitter in taste but normally we chew it in the morning. Infact in India still in villages people do not use tooth brush or paste. They clean their teeth with Neem twig as the neem juice gets into system and is very good for their gums/intestines etc.
Neem tree has quite a few curative properties; it has been widely used in traditional system of medicine for centuries now. Each part of neem is used in medicines and thus commercially exploitable. Neem has been evaluated for safety and efficacy and after numerous research by leading organizations and companies, it has been considered as a universal cure for diseases.
It is a revered tree in India with close to 150 compounds been obtained from different parts of the tree. It is also considered to be a natural source for a medicines and industrial products. Neem (Azadirachta indica)
Properties of Neem Compounds
Parts of Neem and Diseases they Cure:

Various studies and researches have been conducted on the safety and effficacy of different neem medicinal products.
Many herbalists recommend chewing the leaves, taking capsules of dried leaf, or drinking the bitter tea. The leaves cleanse the blood, help the gastrointestinal system (ulcers!), support the liver, and strengthen the immune system, to name just some of the most popular benefits.
Although the leaves of the neem tree have been used this way for thousands of years in India, I recommend you are careful when taking them internally. Neem is a very powerful herb. It's best to ask a qualified herbalist first, and to not take it internally over long periods.
