Default HID Fog Light trouble. HELP

I just recently installed HID head lights and fog lights in my 2010 ranger sport....headlights have worked perfectly but I have been having trouble with my fog lights. Apparently, I'm not getting a good seal around where the bulb installs into the fog light housing and when it is raining and the road is wet, water and moisture has been getting in my lenses. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to get a better seal to prevent moisture and water from entering.

Get some silicone sealant in a tube and put it around the locking base of the bulb when you install it.

Thanks I will try that. I was wondering though....aren't the fog lights suppose to have a vent hole in each housing to dry up moisture if moisture does get inside the lens? I have had to dry mine out with a hairdryer and that really doesn't get all of it to begin with.
