Reccurrent Cellulitis of the Ears

So I found out I had cellulitis of the ear again. On Cephalexin again for 10 days. Any ideas on how I can prevent this from coming back. Is it a problem that it keeps coming back? First one was March 11 and second one July 24, 2013 I think I seem to get them after going swimming at the local pool. Could this be somehow related? Always starts out as red outer ear canal then has a sore on crease of outer ear canal that scabs and bleeds when picked.
