Would the size of the hole around the waffer cause the blue discoloration around the stoma? the skin appears to be rough where the discoloration is,I dont feel that it is from the size of the hole, There appears to be plenty of room. I was hoping that someone in this group had experinced ths same problem, and would have a answere for me.

I think blue/purple/black color around your stoma = emergency and call your doc immediately.

Please let us know how you are doing...

Have you had this happen to you?? There is no pain or uncomfotable feeling , dont even know its there,  almost looks like a fungas of someknd???   I seem to have them on my body, however none of them are that color,  Do you think this is something that should get Medical attention>> I was hoping someone  that has ecperienced this could give me some advice as to what it was or how to treat it.

I agree with the folks here.  I would see your doctor....but, as a precaution, only.  I'm sure it has something to do with how you've cut your appliance, and I wouldn't lose a lot of sleep over it.  But, see your doctor.  Better safe than sorry!

Thanks for your input on this matter , the reason I have not gone to the Dr is because I have several other health issues, I am in my late 80s and in a wheel chair, dont drive, very hard to get to the Dr, I just thought that maybe someone on this program had had the same problem in the past and that there would be something that I could do here at home, Just trying to take the easiest way out, Thank you,

cool  hello i would also agree that you need some medical intervention as ive had a similar thing happen to me. I had small lumps around the stoma and it was also being strangled from inside. The spots were called granulomas or sometimes it's thrush. Is it itchy?? But i would certainly see a doc a.s.a.p or go to the emergency room,just to be on the safe side.
As u know we cant muck around with stoma prob's.........
Good luck and hope they fix the proble for you!!!!!!
 
best wishes,
