An infection is most unlikely at three days. An allergic reaction to the prep used at surgery or the some component of the dressing seems more likely.

I would suggest removing the dressing and getting into the shower, but do speak with your surgeon for advice before doing something that he has suggested not to. 

Thanks and best wishes.
