Caption: Eczema from ileostomy. Skin rash in eczema, caused by intestinal leakage from an ileostomy bag for a 78-year-old woman. The ileostomy bag (white) has been implanted in a surgical operation that passes the ileum (the last part of the small intestine) through the abdominal wall and attaches it to the bag. This is done in cases of severe disorders of the colon (large intestine). The ileostomy may be temporary or permanent (if the colon was removed). Digested intestinal contents (faeces) drain into the bag, which is periodically emptied. Leakage of the faeces is a possible complication. A new bag may need to be fitted to prevent leakage. The skin rash can be treated with steroid creams.
