Maybe: It depends on what your doctor said the cause of the rash is. It could be a local irritation from some soap or shampoo, it could be a mild viral infection, it could be an infection, all of which may go away untreated. Not knowing any more details, there is really no way for us to know via email. Call you doctor back and ask. You can take a few photos of the rash, and check with a dermatologist.
