It sounds like you are having contact dermatitis reaction from the adhesive, adhesive remover, or some component of the bag.  Here is an article.  People in the study had it clear up when the particular allergen was figured out.

ask your doctor to presicribe for you a tropical powder called NYSTOP. this powder will help clear up your problem,. apply it on everytime you change. this has helped my mother tremendously for the last 17 yrs now.

I have had my ileostomy since 1979 and have had this problem a few times.  If you are able, when your stoma is "quiet", shine a bare light bulb (not an energy efficient one) on the bare skin around the stoma.  Believe it or not, your skin will dry up and you should be able to put the bag back on with no problems.  Be sure to use a good skin barrier.

You may also be allergic to tape, so if you don't use a flange and bag system, you may want to check that out as well.
