[IP] Infection at pump site

Having problems with site infections.  I follow

More info please.

How long do you leave the set in place.
Which insulin are you using.
Do you get high bg's as well as site infection.
Is this repeatable or on a regular basis, or just once in a while.
Which set are you using.

I leave the set in 2-3 days.
Sof-set first 3 years
Sof-Set QR this year
High bg's after infection
Take Keflex to clear it up.
I get 1 or 2 per year.
