Hello Doctor! Can you please tell me What are the reasons and causes of SRU (Solitary Rectal Ulcer) and what are the specific medicines in Allopathy to heal it?

2 Doctors Answered
The exact cause of solitary rectal ulcer is actually not known. Hard stools and constipation are usually the inciting factors. There is no specific medications for it. But stool softners. Fibre rich diet. And plenty of water are the simplest step yu can implement.

No definite reason for SRUS. Avoid straining during defecation and don't do digitation during passing stool.
