Antibiotics will most often cure a kidney infection, provided you take the full course of therapy prescribed by the doctor. Never stop taking your antibiotic just because you feel better. Most bacteria have been killed by the time you start to feel better, but the entire course of antibiotics needs to be taken in order to kill the remainder of the microbes. If the entire course is not taken, the bacteria may grow strong again, causing a repeat kidney infection.
