Packing and repacking and abscess on the arm


Best answers
Patient came in to have her wound looked at and repacked. Has an abscess on her arm, that she went to the ER for because she thought it was a spider bite. We removed the gauze the ER placed and repacked it with new gauze and having patient return to do this again in 2 days. Nothing else done, no sutures removed, no repairs, nothing. Would these visit be just a regular E&M?
