Now from the description provided, it looks like you have developed some form of an allergic reaction below the eye. It seems to be unrelated to the genital warts that you have. But I would like to have a look at the exact skin rash before we can come to a final diagnosis.Please click some close up pictures on the skin lesion and upload them here on this page. You can also mail them at YYYY@YYYY with heading as ref to Dr Geetika Paul. Also please tell if you have any associated itching or pain? Since when do you have this skin rash?

Brief Answer: Irritant lesions below eyes, anti allergies needed Detailed Answer: Hi You seem to have developed an irritant reaction below the eyes. The skin lesions surely do not look like warts. The redness and the irritation in these lesions points more towards an allergic cause. You should apply a steroid cream like cortisone over the lesions once a day for three to four days. Take care not to apply any other irritant cream or oil over them. Avoid using things like dettol or savlon. Avoid direct run exposure, use sunglasses or sunscreen when going out in sun. Hope it helps Dr Geetika Paul
