Eczema treatment Diprosone Ointment 100g discontinued from July

Organon Pharma: The 30g tube will still be available

The 100g tube of Diprosone Ointment will be discontinued from July, but the 30g tube will still be available, manufacturer Organon Pharma has told C+D.

Following a “periodic commercial portfolio review” of its products, Organon Pharma has decided to discontinue the Diprosone Ointment 100g preparation, the manufacturer told C+D last week (May 20).

The 30g tube will still be available, Organon Pharma stressed.

“The scheduled date for depletion of this presentation is July 2021,” it said.

The prescription-only medicine is typically used to treat skin problems, including eczema, all types of dermatitis and psoriasis of the scalp, hands and feet.
