It depends what type of infection and in most cases yes if you have a weakened immune system. Women are very prone to urinary tract infections. If you had an infected tooth and were treated with antibiotics then no, this infection should go away, but, anything else in your body be it a urinary tract infection to an wound that won't heal and keeps getting infected means you have a drained immune system and you can pump that immune system up by going to a good Homeopathic clinic.
