If pimples...: then you could apply warm compress (very warm washcloth) for about 10 minutes 4-6 times daily. Do you have them elsewhere? Rather unusual to be only on the breast. Therefore, if this does not help them to clear up you should have your parents take you to a clinic and make sure that they are not small abscesses or something else that would require antibiotics or could require more treatment.
