your body is probably immune to the antibiotics,hense why they aint working ,plus some antibiotics do cause other infections,as your doctor to further tests to rule out kidnet stones ect.

Have you been checked for anything besides kidney infections? Like possibly a kidney stone. Do you have any blood in your urine? Do you have any other symptoms. For example - fatigue, body pain, sleep problems or anything out of the ordinary?
