No the parasite won't go away on it's own. If it were only that easy. And yes, there is a chance it will kill the fish. I would suggest getting a cheap ten gallon and QT'ing the fish. This is the best way to treat them. The main tank will have to stay fallow for 6-8wks to kill off any parasites there as well. And I would suggest a product like Cupramine to treat the fish. Using any kind of copper meds in your main tank is NOT advised.
