    I am interested in becoming a dermatologist when I’m older and want to do an EPQ related to that subject. I was thinking of answering the question “To what extent does diet effect acne”. Would you say this is a good topic or should I improve it?

    I probably wouldn’t do diet and acne, there’s very little recent research of good quality that would link the two to be cause/effect. Also the amount of info you’d need to put into it, and genetic factors or why there is over production of sebum woud make it very hard to condense well. Is there a word /time limit? Since many things can affect acne and help (like the pill can help with acne) it would be quite a broad discussion.

    I’d maybe do something like “increasing use of biological drugs in dermatology” or talk about pros and cons of roaccutane (isotretin).
    Both are quite topical atm so might be worth writing.

    What would be quite interesting is you could talk about the relationship of primary care to secondary care escalation for dermatological conditions, the importance of laying the basic treatments first and then if those do not work what options the dermatology specialists could do.


    A nice one could also be if patients are more affected by psoriasis pathology or the psychological effect of the autoimmune disease?

    I’ll try to think of some more possible ones.

    Melanomas are always a good topic but might be done a lot.
