Hi all.

I am wondering if it's possible to be allergic against organ meat, especially liver? My entire face is covered in tiny pimples, when looking in a specific angle in the mirror i notice i am all over them!

I have eaten grass fed liver yesterday evening and left over this morning.. By the end of today my redness/skin acne rash seemed to have increased. Any thoughts, please?

Just speaking from experience here: liver can be touch and go. I take a desiccated liver supplement almost every day to help supply BCAAs. If I take too much I get diarrhea and have to discontinue use for a couple of days before I can start back. I would agree with Matt above: stop eating it. Then I would say start back with smaller quantities and give your body a chance to get used to it. If you run out and devour like a whole cow liver in one sitting, my guess is your rash will be back. For starters I would try maybe an oz. or two per day for a while and see how that goes.

Stop eating it. Let it clear up. Try again. If you get the same response, it's causing a problem (whether it's a true allergy is another thing.)
