its so annoying. it's never usually like this and at first i thought i just got a cold cos i started med in december and i did actually get a cold in jan....but by feb i was like wtf why am i still not over this. and now its like.......... definatly must be accutane. its worse in like warm places (so like work) and im constantly sniffing. anyone else ever had/had this ??

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!
