Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Antibiotics only clear the present infection
When the infection is recurrent, you will need extensive investigations to elucidate the cause.
It can be structural or functional problem in the kidney - or even a systemic cause / the ideal option will be to get admitted in a multi-speciality tertiary care hospital...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
