This is an ileostomy stoma. It protrudes like this so that the liquid stool does not burn the skin. The stoma is located on the right hand side of the tummy.
This is a colostomy stoma. Note how it is flusher with the skin, and located on the left hand side of the tummy.
This is a close up of a colostomy stoma. It may look sore and red but this is normal and there is no discomfort from a stoma. My own stoma smaller, less red and does not protrude so much. So it goes to show that no two stoma's are the same.
