Staph skin infections without antibiotics?

Hi, my four year old lab has had skin infections each year, usually in the summer. The vet has prescribed anti biotics and it has cleared up. It now seems like she has it again but I really don't want her to have more antibiotics if I can help it. She hates taking them, it upsets her tummy and I just don't think it can be that good for her.
I have been making sure to dry her, especially round her belly and inside back legs, where the most trouble is. I have purchased an antibacterial shampoo but only used it once so far. I was thinking once a week. I have also purchased an iodine spray and have been spraying this on 3 times a day for the last couple of days.
Any thoughts or suggestions? Obviously I will take her to the vet if it doesn't get any better.
