  1. Default CPT code for skin scraping??
    New Call-to-action
    Patient here for F/U skin rash, suspect scabies. She has red, non confluent papules and excoriations on the digits, abdomem,chest,groin, and buttocks region. Skin scraping was performed and I analyzed the tissue under the microscope. I did see some fine black oval shaped particles withich appear to be excrement. No mites however were identified.

    Can't seem to find a CPT code for the skin scraping. Can anyone help me?? Thanks.
