Hi Alison,thank you for your reply.the spots are sore to touch.to-day was the first day in weeks that they haven't been sore.the spot appears in one place and is gone by by next day.another one appears somewhere else.
I don't think they are hives.my diet hasn't changed in any way.the only thing may be shampoo.i'm going to change it this evening.i'll see how i get on.i hope you can follow all of this. i'll let you know how i get on. thanks again. margaret

Hi Margaret194,
Hard, red spots under your skin on your face would not be a side effect of quitting smoking. Can you call your doctor and have these checked?

Congratulations on quitting smoking! Let us know what other information you need. Are these spots painful? Do they come-and-go or are they becoming more numerous? (I'm wondering if you are experiencing hives or an allergic reaction?)
