Category Notes
Persons with potential health hazards related to socioeconomic and psychosocial circumstances (Z55-Z65)

Coding Guidelines
Factors influencing health status and contact with health services (Z00-Z99)
Note: Z codes represent reasons for encounters. A corresponding procedure code must accompany a Z code if a procedure is performed. Categories Z00-Z99 are provided for occasions when circumstances other than a disease, injury or external cause classifiable to categories A00-Y89 are recorded as 'diagnoses' or 'problems'. This can arise in two main ways:
(a) When a person who may or may not be sick encounters the health services for some specific purpose, such as to receive limited care or service for a current condition, to donate an organ or tissue, to receive prophylactic vaccination (immunization), or to discuss a problem which is in itself not a disease or injury.
(b) When some circumstance or problem is present which influences the person's health status but is not in itself a current illness or injury.

I couldn't find anything good. T78.49- might work Allergy, unspecified. I was directed to it by the index, Allergy > specific NEC.

Another idea might be J30.89 - Other allergic rhinitis and the follow the use additional note and code of Z77.22 (exposure to environmental tobacco smoke) and/or Z57.31 (occupational exposure to environmental tobacco smoke)
