What does purplish ring around stoma opening indicate?
If the illeostomy is functioning then there is no cause for concern
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day
The purplish discolouration is likely to be due to congestion of stoma, due to narrowing of opening of stoma and retraction of stoma. Exact assessment is possible after clinical examination. Providing clinical photograph will be helpful.
As long as stoma is functioning well and mucosa of illeostomy is pink in colour , there is no cause for concern.
Do send me clinical photograph for further assessment.
