Quick smoking, have rash on chest and upper abdomen, no pain or itching. Alarming?

I quit smoking tobacco cold-turkey 6 days ago. The acne on my back seems to be clearing up but I ve noticed a rash of red spots appearing on my chest and upper abdomen. They don t itch or hurt, but they are definitely there. Since they aren t causing any problems I m not so much concerned as I am curious. Is this normal and benign or is this something I should have looked at?
