Quit smoking. Started taking Lipitor. Developed rash on face. Reason?

After 30 years, I quit smoking over 2 weeks ago. I also started taking lipitor and developed this Roseola looking rash on my face. My cardiologist thought it was the lipitor so I stopped about a week ago. Rash is still there. Could it be related to the not smoking? I have also changed my diet. Eatting more veggies... less protein. Eatting stuff like Kayle, flax, omega 3 rich products.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.
i advise you to consult a dermatologist, for diagnosis and treatment, it could be due to allergy if it is itching. Otherwise it may be some infection. It is not definitely due to quiting the smoking.
The dermatologist will go through the tests done and decide the disease. and decide the cause.
Wishing for a quick recovery.
