Why can't I get rid of H. pylori even after 3 heavy antibiotic course along with PPI/antacid?


I have been trying to treat H. Pylori for the past 6 months. My doctor said he has given me the best therapy (quadruple therapy) to treat the infection. My symptoms disappears when I use antibiotics but comes back when the medication is over. The test comes back positive again and again. Is it really that difficult to treat H. Pylori? Or am I getting reinfected from my Family members? How easy it is to get reinfected?
