    YOU do not have an antibiotic resistance. The bacterium being treataed has an antibiotic resistance.

    Once a bacterium is resistant to antibiotics (generally through misuse of antibiotics) it is a permanent situation.

    At the tate antibiotic resistant bacteria are developing (evolving) it is likely we will be as helpless to treat bacterial infections as we were before antibiotics were developed in a few decades.

    You don't generate an antibiotic resistance. The bacteria you are trying to kill do. Once a resistant strain enters (mutates in) a population (of bacteria/an infection) it is unlikely it will disappear unless the infection is completely eradicated.
