Default icd 9 code - rash

how would you code, papulo / vesicular rash on arms/legs?

Nothing listed under "rash" to assign a more specific code. I used rash, is this correct?

Thank you

I indexed papule which goes to 709.8 and vesicle which goes to 709.8 which is other specified disorders of skin. That is what I would use.
