You are right. You need to be seen by a gastroenterologist. Bloody diarrhea in an 18 year old is ot treated by medication alone without a more complete evaluation. It is possible that it was an infectious colitis but 18 is also at a peak age for patients to present with Crohn's disease. The fact that symptoms recurred argues more for the possibility of inflammatory bowel disease.
