Hi Guys, I have a few questions that I need help with, I think im fighting off a flare at the moment as i've been feeling a bit fluey over the last few weeks and my BM's have been looser although no blood and not D just looser. I am now sore down there but not in pain. I have upped my meds to 9 x colazide and 2 x asacol rectal meds per day to try and fight off the symptoms. I have developed a really sore mouth over the last couple of days and it feels like I have burnt the roof of my mouth and my tongue is sore, the roof of my mouth started to bleed slightly so I thought i'd have a look. I have lots of liitle red spots all over sides of mouth and inside of lips. This has happened before but not as severely. I visited my gp this morning who said there are loads of little ulcers in there and it could be a mouth infection or could be related to colitis. He has prescribed me Erthromycin (antibiotics) and asked me if I was ok to take antibiotics. I have not needed to take any since being diagnosed with UC so im not sure if I should take them or not? I have heard that antibiotics can make UC symptoms worse is this correct? If I am starting to flare then I don't want to make it worse by taking these tablets. What would you do? I don't want to make things worse but if it is only a mouth infection then I guess it needs treatment?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
