What are the consequences when you don't treat a UTI?

Some uncomplicated infections may clear up on their own in a week or two. However, most UTIs require antibiotics for treatment.

If left untreated for a prolonged period, there is a risk of the infection getting worse. Untreated urinary tract infections can cause kidney damage. If the infection spreads to other parts of the body, it can lead to sepsis. It is vital to consult with a physician if you have a UTI that has not resolved on its own or if the symptoms persist/keep getting worse.

For uncomplicated UTIs, you can use over-the-counter medications to help relieve the symptoms. You can learn more about it in this link.
