Dermatologist Questions Impetigo

recurring Impetigo

I have an outbreak of impetigo for the 3rd time. I'm a 30 yr old female. I was on the topical cream antibiotic bactrim and cephalexin. The impetigo did clear up and then it just came back out of nowhere on my face. It was on my arms and neck now I only have a couple ofs spots on my face. I just don't understand why it's recurring and I'm wondering if I should be worried about my immune system. I'm an active person and I take vitamins every day
