[IP] Set problems!

After 7 months of fairly effortless pumping, I have been unable to get a
painless, non-bleeding site for the last 3 tries!!!  :(

It will seem OK at first, but then starts to hurt about 24 hours later,
and gets red and irritated.

One of the sets, I endured for 3 days, and when I took it out, there was
a little bit of pus and a little red lump; I put antibiotic ointment on
it, and it's definitely healing. The others, I took out as soon as they
started to bother me, and they're healing, also. One of them showed some
dried blood on the cannula.

I tried my best not to contaminate them -- changed out the syringe,
tubing and everything, and what I'm wondering is, could this just be a
"foreign-body" reaction, or is it really an infection?
