In brief: Depends
There's no cure for cmv, and treatment for the virus generally isn't necessary or recommended for healthy children and adults.
But if you are immunocompromised due to HIV or treatment after organ transplantation, you may need an antiviral med, such as ganciclovir, depending on where the infection is.
