Several causes: for recurrent kidney infections: stones, abnormal anatomy, blood stream infection, etc.. You would benefit more by seeing a specialist, a urologist, some more studies, as blood / imaging studies may be needed, meanwhile finish the full prescribed course of antibiotics, another common reason for having a recurrent infection, is not completing antibiotics prescribed course, good luck

? Wrong antibiotic: Dr should have sent urine sampple for culture. Sensitivity results should be available after 48 hours bacterial incubation. Check with your dr. U need repeat urinalysis + culture & sensitivity test & start an effective antibiotic. Unless your symptoms are related to kidney stone or blockage, in which case consultation with a urologist should be considered.
