Hi I am sorry I don't know what tdf is, when I treated with Inf, Riba and Incivek and got very itchy my doctor gave me a prescription, like an antihistimine to help with the itchiness.
It helped a bit but I have to say that for what ever reason sometimes nothing helped.
Good luck to you

I was on TDF, vit E 400mg, zinc 50mg, vit d3 10000iu daily.  TDF made my urine tea colored and skin turning yellowish brown.  I have had extensive work up by rheumatologist and gastroenterologist.  URologist did cystoscopy but found nothing.  Basically all tests came back normal.  Finally my hepatologist switched me over to baraclude.  The urine color normalized.  Skin is lighter.  Still have hives but not as bad.  I talked to the rheumatologist and was told that some Asians don't have the proper enzymes to metabolize the drug and hence the side effects.
