    Hi all,

    I hope you can help me with this...A patient comes in with a history of warts and continues to get them...would this be considered (established problem worsening, 2 problem points), (self limited problem, 1 problem point) or new problem no additional workup planned because it is a new wart that is being treated?

    I would cosider it to be an establised problem worsening.
