I replied this in the UC forum too - just in case you dont see it!
I really struggled with the loop ileostomy. I also had the bleeding raw skin - a real nightmare. What I found to work was a convexity type (cone shaped inward towards the stoma) plate 2 piece system and I always needed to use an ostomy belt to keep it tight on me to stop the leaking. Good luck and I hope that all goes well for you!

I bled every day from Aug 2006 (I quit smoking in June 2006) to Jan 2010.
Imuran (Azathioprine) game me liver damage. LDN no luck. Asacol and mesalazine enemas - seemed to make worse. Lots of Prednisone :( No luck on drugs!
