Is there a cure for pyelonephritis?

In brief: Yes

Antibiotics are a must or the infection will progress and worsen and make you very sick.
Once adequately treated, the infection will resolve and your infection will be "cured".

In brief: Antibiotics

Broad spectrum antibiotics which achieve good tissue levels as soon as suspected or diagnosed.
Pyelonephriis for both gram positive + gram negative organisms (your dr. Will explain) after urine culture obtained, for at least 2 weeks possibly longer. Then find out root cause of your kidney infection, ?Infected kidney stone, bloodborn, reflux brom bladder, etc.+ have it corrected to avoid recurrence.
