In brief: Hepatitis B

You need to be seen and evaluated by an infectious diseases expert or a hepatologist.
This may or may not require treatment, and there are new agents available with which to manage this. Go and get seen and assessed before severe liver damage occurs. Good luck.

In brief: No Cure

There is no cure for chronic active hepatitis b.
But, if one is on one of the treatments to suppress hepatitis then this is like a cure (just one that relies upon taking the effective medication every day).
