As a teenager, I suddenly had a terrible sun allergy. It is worth sunbathing a little - and the skin becomes covered with itchy red spots, or even blisters. Because of this annoying illness, I could not afford a full-fledged beach vacation. It was worth walking once under the hot Egyptian sun - and the rest of the time I “rested” exclusively indoors or under an awning. This year, no matter what, I went to Gelendzhik. But not alone, but with Zodak. A friend advised him as the best allergy remedy. And indeed: every day I strictly took these miraculous drops and in 2 weeks I never found a spot on me! I sunbathed and enjoyed the southern sun to my liking, thanks to Zodak. Irina, Moscow

My son Timofey, 8 years old, suddenly became very susceptible to allergens. Spring is outside and pollen flies - it sneezes and it has a bad cold. My grandmother, without consulting me, gave him paracetamol on temperature - and we rush to the hospital with suspicion of Quincke's edema. Everything would be very sad if it were not for Zodak. He was advised by an allergist. After the first course of treatment, the symptoms of allergy disappeared completely. For comparison: in the treatment of other anti-allergic drugs such an effect was not. Marina, Brest, Belarus

My daughter begins a seasonal exacerbation of allergy in the spring: constant runny nose and tearing, coughing and difficulty breathing. We tried a lot of drugs, but the best for us in terms of price and quality turned out to be Zodak in drops. Now spring does not frighten us and does not upset us, but it makes us extremely happy!
