I used to get this, my worse side-effect to be honest. It was more of a joint effort from my nose and upper lip, the 'wet war' I used to call it. Now that I've finished accutane I'm experiencing the complete opposite, with my nose being blocked/feeling crusted and irritated (especially in the morning).

Ya, I have had the same problem actually....the loss of oil is probably messing with our mucus membranes....hahaha gah that sounded nerdy! This might feel like TMI, but mine is really thin, like water. I usually notice it if I'm bending over to grab something...it just drips like water. Kinda weird, but can't say it's horribly obnoxious compared to those bloody cysts!

mine is exactly the same, like water dripping outta my nose. how are you getting on?? do you get cysts quite alot? i got one massive one on my cheek that took literally 3 weeks to start going down but other than that no more.
