Colitis and Blood and Mucus in the Stool

Colitis refers to inflammation of the large intestine or colon. 

It is a word typically used to describe large bowel diarrhea. It can be caused by stress, infections, parasites or trauma, though allergies or inflammatory bowel disease can be behind it also.

JD got it because he ate some nasty bit of animal left behind by hunters. He recovered on his own with the help of initial fast and bland diet.
