Not likely: If this is your only symptom. You may have an anal fissure. See your doctor for correct diagnosis.

Probably not: Many holistic therapies have been tried for uc, some with success. It probably wouldn't hurt so give it a try. Give it a week or two, if no improvement, save your money. Usual rx is 5-asa compounds. See a good gastroenterologist.
