Not really: hepatitis B can be controlled by your immune system on its own, without ever requiring treatment, but the virus remains dormant in your liver and may re-activate if your immune system is compromised. Other times you do need treatment with meds to stop the inflammation in the liver and prevent cirrhosis, liver cancer
