Lymphocytic colitis: Makes sure you are not on any inciting medications ( see list below) and Would call your doc/a doc and discuss the persistence and ask if antibiotic therapy or other therapy or colonoscopy is warranted at this time http://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/health-topics/digestive-diseases/microscopic-colitis/Pages/facts.aspx
