Threadworms do eventually go away on their own even without medical treatment.

The Threadworms will eventually die inside of you within about 6 weeks as long as you do not swallow any new Threadworm eggs.

I would highly recommend seeing a doctor to get some medicine to kill the Threadworms much sooner so that you don't have to feel bad and deal with the Threadworms for too long.

I would rather take some medicine to kill the Threadworms instead of waiting it out and being sick.

But eventually after 6 weeks the threadworms should be fully gone as long as you do not ingest any more Threadworm eggs.

I would highly recommend seeing a doctor if you are infected with threadworms.
