Can colonoscopy prep cause mild inflammation and redness in small intestine? I sometimes have loose stools with no other symptoms. Worried it's Crohns

In brief: Inflammation

Bowel prep does not usually cause that , however it is possible.
Crohns would cause you more severe symptoms and if it's was the prep I would think that the inflammation would disappear after completing the procedure. Good Luck
