    Are they treating the dermatitis/effects of the behavior or is this an OCD kind of issue? I think you need more info to determine which way to go.

    oh yeah, I'm just working with the charge ticket. There's also a DX of polydisa, don't need help with that. Also looking at the registration side of the ticket, there's a coment of patient. Rash on the face. Does this help.

    that's a good one, but I'd go with 692.89 unless they specifically state Rosacea (perioral dermatitis).
