Can anyone tell me how you would code a general allergic reaction? Example... A patient comes into the ED with a rash and lip swelling at home. The patient does not have a history of allergies. The patient can not think of what could have caused the reaction. Just remember eating shrimp but has eaten this before without a problem. The MD states Dx as " allergic reaction".
If you can give the E-codes also that would be great.
