Beiersdorf, the company that makes Eucerin and Aquaphor, has a program for high-use users where you can receive a case of 12 bottles of any of their products, for FREE, with a letter from your dermatologist stating what condition you have and that it is medically necessary. Once they have you on file, you can call for a new case every 3 months.
Aquaphor Original is available by ordering it through your pharmacy. Only Aquaphor Healing, which has alcohol in it and tends to sting, is available on store shelves.
This program is available to residents of the United States. It is unfortunately not offered in Canada, although one of our members called and received coupons for $10 off.
You have to provide them with a doctor's letter with your contact info, diagnosis and treatment, and they send you the product. You have to renew the request every 3 months by calling them. You do not need to get a new letter each time, though. Fax the letter to 203-563-5630. The general customer service phone number is 800-227-4703.
