What exactly does it mean to have mild colitis? My 13 year old son was recently diagnosed with mild colitis. From all of the reading I have been doing on the subject, one of the symtems is diarea (diarrhea), my son has problems with contipation. I have so many questions, but the main one is what is colitis exactly?
Colitis is the inflammation of the colon.

There are many causes of colitis and ulcerative colitis is one form of colitis.

The severity of ulcerative colitis is divided in to mild , moderate and severe based on many criteria. This helps to plan the treatment.
