sounds like it could be allergies, i'd contact a dermatologist in your area. Fair warning they are pricier but they'll be able to do more extensive testing and have more of a skin based skill set to see problems some vets wouldn't initially think of.
I'd also stick to one food until you have it figured out or you're potentially only making the problem worse. The dermatologist, if they suspect food allergy, will likely start you on an elimination diet anyways.
Good luck! My allergy boy is allergic to foods, pollen's, molds, you name it. He gets a monthly shot for the environmental allergies (which needs some tweaking) and he has very strict treat and food restrictions as far as ingredients that are safe, it makes for an interesting time at the pet store lol.
It's also possible the courses of antibiotics aren't long enough so it's just some resilient staph. coming back, but that would be something to check with your vet on.
