In brief: Seems to be infectio

The bodies immune response does not shut off suddenly.
The reason for lengthy antibiotic treatment at times is the bug has a life cycle that results in new live bacteria periodically that may not have been kiled by the antibiotic yet. Some forms can be dormant in the body for a while. Feeling ok does not necessarily mean free of infection-take meds for the full course.
