My mother a few weeks ago developed red spots on her skin and doctors said it's an allergy but she still doesn't know what allergy it is and the spots are still persisting. I gave her 1 liquid b-complex vitamin, 1 b-complex tablet, 1 panthothenic acid tablet, 1 niacin tablet, 1 high dose ubiquinol capsule, 1 natural e vitamin capsule with soy oil after a meal with a big amount of walnuts and hazelnuts I guess that day. She ate and took all of that before many times and I suspect the problem may be niacin and she suspects the problem may be nuts, I didn't give her any more niacin since that day. She doesn't wanna change her diet in which she is free to eat anything, she can only be persuaded for small changes with my power and nerve to persuade... Stress / anxiety may also be a problem for her. She has cholesterol levels below hypercholesterolemia levels and I persuaded her to stop using statins, she's using policosanol mixed in cinnamon(cinnamomum verum).

What kind of niacin (flush or non-flush)? B3 is a vitamin, without it you develop pellagra. Much more likely a nut allergy, the coq10, or something else in the supplements.
My vote is the high dose coenzyme-Q10.
That sounds like a ton of B vitamins, btw. (B-complex liquid + B-complex tablet + B3 + B5). Usually you pick a complex or individual b's, but not two complexes stacked with individual b's. Often, just a half a b-100 (b-50).
