Has anyone else experienced excessive sweating after starting accutane? After ~1 mo on accutane, I noticed excessive sweating around my eyebrows, nose, and upper lips even when I'm sitting still. Then there's the abnormally embarrassing amount of back sweat I get when I'm moving - especially during sex!! At first I thought it was the hot weather but it's gotten really chilly and I'm still sweating like a pig.

What can I do to reduce this and will it stop after I finish my course?

Unfortunatley I can't really help you but I can tell you go to a doctor.
This is odd because I had excessive sweating from taking antibiotic Doxycycline, now I'm not so sure it is actually from the Doxy but I know that I went to a doctor (yes it was awkward) and was prescribed DrySol. 

I sweated Ted from my underarms, hands, and feet. DrySol has cured it. When you apply, it lasts for 2-3 weeks before you need to reapply.
