Don't smoke: HPV DNA may persist indefinitely, but it isn't known how often this happens. Active infection usually is controlled by the immune system within a year or two, does not recur, and the virus cannot be transmitted. So for practical purposes, it is cured. There are no medications, diets, or anything else known to improve clearance. Smoking may delay clearance or increase risk of future problems. ...Read more
