Diprobase Ointment and Diprobase Cream discontinued

The manufacturer has confirmed both products have been discontinued, but a new formulation of the cream will be made available.

Diprobase Ointment Towards the end of November 2021, we received a number of queries from our members who were having difficulty obtaining Diprobase Ointment.

We contacted the manufacturer, Bayer UK, to enquire whether there was an issue with supply of the product. Bayer UK confirmed that both Diprobase Ointment and Diprobase Cream have been discontinued, however a new formulation of the cream, Diprobase Advanced Eczema Cream, will be made available.

Bayer UK said that this decision was due to marketing reasons and advised that anyone using Diprobase Ointment or Diprobase Cream discuss their requirements with their GP or pharmacist so that they can recommend a suitable alternative.

If you have any questions or would like further information, Bayer UK can be contacted directly either by phone on 0118 206 3116, or by email at medical.information@bayer.co.uk (medical information).
