If both top and bottom are finished equally, when you do get it flat, reverse the top and bottom, the cupping up as I presume the cupping went down before. This sometimes caused someone placing damp objects, material in a drawer. Sometimes, even from the drawer below. As is often the case, drawer bottoms are seldom finished with even varnish. Finishing them does not prevent moisture incurion or escape(drying), but it slows the rate of either and help prevent your problem. If you have a vaporizer for breathing, cold relief, you might try that, making a tent of plastic or even a card board box. Good luck.
