Why is that? Biofilm is to blame. Biofilm is a protective network of bacterial cells and compounds that acts as a shield to UTI causing bacteria. Once formed, Biofilm protects the bacteria from the immune system and even antibiotics. Because this bacteria is never cleared, it causes a relapse infection when it ends it's dormancy. A UTI caused by old bacteria left over from a previous infection is called a replace infection or a recurring UTI (rUTI).
