In brief: Nothing
Most people recover from hpv naturally, like recovering from other viral infections.
However, if the infection persists, there are no good interventions to get rid of the virus. If you are a woman, it is very important that you have regular check ups and pap examinations. A vaccine is available to prevent common types of hpv infections.

80% of women clear the virus within 1 year, and 90% have cleared it by 3 years. 10% may not clear the HPV, they are at highest risk for complications like cervical cancer.
