I'm coming from a low-protein vegan diet (worst health decision I ever made) I've begun reintroducing all kinds of meats, and I'm starting to see health improvements, but every time I eat poultry (so far just chicken and turkey) I experience a slightly uncomfortable skin tingling over my upper body, arms, and face about 30-45 minutes after consumption. There is no redness or anything visual. It happens with or without eating of the skin. And it happens consistently. I can't help thinking it must be indicative of something. Before my year stint as a vegan I ate poultry regularly, so I doubt it's an allergy. My first thought was omega-6 or maybe something with going on with liver detoxification???
Anyone have this experience, or ideas?

You can develop an intolerance where you didn't have one previously.
You may be particularly sensitive to what the chicken ate. I'd try getting your poultry from multiple sources and finding out what each sources feed them.

it could be niacin...just a guess.
