The body does not build up immunity to penicillin. The bacteria that penicillin is designed to kill does.

As you take the penicillin more and more bacteria are killed within your system and you start to feel better. As you start to feel better you become less aware of the symptoms of the infection and are inclined to forget to keep taking the remainder if your penicillin (after all I feel fine you say) the problem however is that some of the bacteria are not killed of if the coarse of medicine is not finished. These bacteria are likely to form a resistance to penicillin as a result of their exposure making the illness harder to treat next time. Some illnesses that were once easily treated with penicillin are now very difficult or impossible to treat. Many as the direct result of over use or improper use of penicillin.
