No need to treat: Having HPV is a normal, expected part of being sexually active. There is no need and no point in treating infections without warts or other visible abnormality. For sure interferon would be a waste of money, time and energy. The immune system normally clears the virus over a few months or a couple of years. Don't worry about it.
