Seems strange......

Can't comment on the treatments except that they work on most other

Possibly consider a reinfective state ......something in lifestyle
causing reinfection.....one sure way to check is to place in a monitored
facility and see how long the person goes without infection...then look
at the environmental stuff.....

very strange
