Mother had active HSV 1 (location of HSV was on mothers mons pubis) and delivered via C-section. Newborn had HSV testing done and was all negative. What DX codes would you assign for the newborn claim? z38.01 as the primary and I'm struggling with the secondary codes, if to assign p00.89, or p00.2 or z20.828 since newborn doesn't have HSV, just tested prophylactically. What's the difference between "affected by" or "contact with suspected exposure"?

if the newborn does not have HSV, you can't assign that code. contact/exposure means just that, that all you know is newborn was exposed to or came into contact with HSV
