Quizzie, if you don’t take treatment it might go away by itself, but it might also become chronic and even move up to the kidneys and cause severe problems. If you take the appropriate antibiotics, it should clear up in less than 3 days. You can take anti-inflammatories and drink lots of water to try and speed up the repair. Good luck.
