Seasonal allergy for me comes from the first warm days and manifests itself with all the characteristic symptoms: runny nose, red eyes and constant sneezing. Therefore, the choice of a drug that can quickly eliminate them is a vital task. Kestin helps after 20-30 minutes after ingestion, one pill is enough for full 24 hours, in addition, it is not contraindicated for drivers, does not cause addiction and drowsiness. The only drawback is the rather high price (higher than that of analogs). Tatyana, Moscow

For a year, I suffered from severe dermatitis on my arm, which intensified after cleaning, washing and washing dishes. The doctor prescribed me an ointment in combination with Kestin, and in just 2 weeks my problem remained in the past. It is a little expensive, but it fully justifies the money spent on it. Elizaveta, Nizhny Novgorod

I have an allergy with experience, for many years I have suffered from a terrible allergy to plants and some products, and sometimes it comes to suffocation. But since Kestin appeared in my medicine cabinet, the troubles are over - only one pill, half an hour of patience and the symptoms disappear without a trace. I recommend to everyone who is in my situation !. Sofia, Kazan
