The itching sounds like hemmiroids or a skin yeast infection.
UC usually has some change in in bowel movements, including blood, runny poops, abdominal cramping, fatigue, among other symptoms.
I would suggest your husband contact his doctor and ask what they are treating him for.
I hope you find an answer :)
