After reviewing your questions I will "try" to help you out as best as I can. In the first scenerio I would use 781.3 as the dx
In scenerio 2 I would use a code for the diaper rash and the candidal, in my opinion using both codes would clearly describe the issue.
In scenerio 3. I think you do actually have an exam where physician states about the navel clear and dry , no redness or oozing, color pink and skin warm and dry, I would count it as skin. Do you know why the appt was scheduled it sounds like "well infant/child visit to me. I'd use a V-code .
Now this is just my opinion, I don't code for peds currently but will be in less than two weeks. Hopefully someone who codes it currently will see this message and maybe "correct me" on that one.
Have a good day.
