What would be the best CPT code for debridement of 4 porokeratosis lesions on the plantar aspect of the left foot? I was looking at the 17xxx code range, but I don't see where they support the dx code Q82.8. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The provider used trichloroacetic acid for this.

The application of the acid makes it sound more like DESTRUCTION of benign lesion (which includes chemosurgery) rather than debridement. 17110-17111
