Alergies when quitting?

When I have quit before, I get raging allergies. Anyone else experience this?
Needless to say, such a relief to start again!

Probably a coincidence.

Cigarettes function as neither an antihistamine nor a decongestant. The fact that you came into contact with something you are severely allergic to at the same time you were quitting was no doubt a coincidence. If it happens every time you try to quit, it isn't allergies, it's something else (withdrawal?). Ask your doctor.
