Colitis is the inflammation of the inner lining of the colon which is presented as diarrhea, pain, fever, and blood in the stool. It can be caused due to infection, loss of blood supply to the colon, long-standing disease or in case if one is diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease etc. Blood in the stool is never normal so one should not ignore it.
