In brief: Define cure ??

Depending on the strain you can have visible lesions removed or the immune system will eventually clear the primary infestation within a year or two.
However, HPV comes from a family of viruses that tend to hibernate within your system forever after the first infection clears.They may or may not re-activate and shed virus off and on indefinitely or never.There is no definitive cure.
