ostomy skin problems

My son just had to have an ileostomy placed back after a failed attempt of a j-pouch.  His first ostomy was fine as far as his skin.  This one has been a nightmare.  He has a fistula and now about one inch away his skin is red and hard.  Has anyone had this.  We will take him back to the ostomy nurse this week.
Thanks
