Some possibilities..: Usually, one sees the doctor again in such a situation. Some possibilities are: the illness is not bacterial so the antibiotic would not work, there is an abscess somewhere which is hard for the oral antibiotic to get into, the illness is bacterial but the germ is resistant to the antibiotic being taken, the antibiotic is counterfeit (in foreign countries), the antibiotic dose is too small, etc..
