This code should also be used for those patients with recalcitrant or difficult to treat genital warts (requiring treatment / follow-up > 12 weeks) or those requiring more specialist therapies e.g. hyfrecation This code should not be used for ‘simple’ skin rashes e.g. those treated empirically on the first visit with Canesten HC

This code should only be used in patients with genital warts whose treatment requires specialist input and is lasting longer than 12 weeks
