ICD 9 code for resolved skin conditions

    Default ICD 9 code for resolved skin conditions
    Medical Coding Books
    I am coding a note where the patient came in previously and had a wart destroyed by LN2. The patient now returns about 2 months later for f/u as per dr's instructions and the wart is resolved, no other complaints. The plan is for the pt to return if the wart redevelopes. What is the ICD 9 code?
    Thank you!

    It is perfectly acceptable to use only v codes on a claim. Both of the suggested V codes are allowed first listed.
