I am curious if antibiotics don't work for an infection does it worsen the infection ?

In brief: No But

No the antibiotic does not make the infection worse but the lack of the proper antibiotic lets the infection gain a greater foot hold so see your md and have them test the infection for the best antibiotic to use.
