Can some infections go away without medical treatment?

I'm just asking this cause I'm a little curious.

Well, doctors are not giving antibiotics as frequently as they used to due to antibiotic resistant bacteria and some infections can go away on their own.

But there are some infections you do not want to leave because they will not go away and become life threatening. These are the Gram negative bacteria such as strep throat which can lead to scarlet fever, helicobacter which causes ulcers and others.

But it is best to have the doctor test you to find out what the infection is, so he can tell you what to do about it.

I hope this helps to answer your question. : D

No you should always see a doctor about an infection because it might get worst and spread
