    you can code it as either a wound/contusion depending on the severity of the sore and, an e code in the drug section due to the adverse reaction of the med.

    Default chemo side effects

    might also look under Ulcer, Skin, by site and also using 995.20 and an Ecode for the drug if you know which one caused the sore.
