Hi guys. Earlier today I was out in the sun for a few hours without any sunblock, cue pink arms and face.

Anyway, I was just getting ready for bed and I noticed there was yellow pus emanating from several different pores on my nose. I'm using a tissue to dab it right now as it just keeps coming.

Anyone got any idea what's going on? I can't seem to find anything about it on the internet.

  • I'm curious if you ever found an answer to your question. I had the same thing happen to me. Got sunburned, and all night severl areas on my nose were weeping and the discharge was drying to a yellow crust. Thanks

Haven't had any problems since.I'd still like to know myself what the deal was though.
