In brief: Resolves slpwly

An untreated urinary tract infection will usually eventually clear up on it's own.
However, sometimes the infection will ascend to the kidneys (called pyelonephritis) which can damage the kidneys - and on rare occasion the infection can lead to sepsis and death if untreated. The benefit of treatment is a speedier resolution, with much less risk of complications.
