And response to certain treatments.
Treatments involve office procedures where formalin soaked dressing is applied to affected areas to special suppositories to enemas. High fiber diet is also recommended to avoid diarrhea and constipation which can make the proctitis worse. Its usually managedby colorectal surgeons or GI docs.

In brief: Oral, rectal, inject

Melamine suppositories or enemas are generally the best.
Oral melamine and oral or rectal steroids are also used. For severe, refractory cases injectable anti-tnf medications are occasionally needed.
