Most of the cases of hepatitis B cure spontaneously and may not require treatment. You may need a repeat test after 6 months to see whether you have cleared the virus or if the infection is persisting Antiviral drugs are used in hepatitis B.They are not a cure but reduce the damage caused by the virus and decrease the ability of the virus to reproduce. They can slow down the damage . If a person is symptom free he may not need these drugs but if there is evidence of ongoing liver damage then treatment may be required. People with hepatitis B are at risk of developing cirrhosis, liver failure and liver cancer. Talk to your health care practitioner about the possible options for you. That will definitely help.
Good luck and regards!
