[IP] Taking a bath and infusion site

Okay -- here's a "newbie" question.  I really enjoy taking baths and hadn't
thought about how this might affect my infusion site.  I use the MiniMed
507C and the SofSet QR infusion sets.  The first time I took a bath I
noticed that the next day when I changed my site that it was damp underneath
the tape.  Can this lead to infection?

Any insight is welcome!  Thanks!
