Thanks for your question.
CPT 10060 is coded for incision and drainage of cyst for abscess (and others pathology mentioned in CPT code description).
Diagnosis issued 692.9 (contact dermatitis and eczema) would not be listed on the payers LCD as eczema or dermatitis is not generally treated with incision and drainage and hence denied.
You should look for supporting diagnosis like cyst or abscess in report in charts to bill along with 10060.
Hope it answers your query.

Thank you!
