Diagnosis for Scurf on Lids
Question: We are trying to determine the best ICD-10 code for scurf and mild sleeving on the lids.
Answer: ICD-10-CM, although more descriptive, does not provide that level of specificity. The best choice is blepharitis. H01.0-. As this code family is six characters in length, you will need to have documentation supporting which lid and type (unspecified, ulcerative or squamous).
