Granulation tissue: It takes about two to four weeks for the new vessels supplying the damaged area to mature, and you may have postinflammatory pigmentation for another few weeks. The same process is taking place as in a surgical scar if you've ever had a chance to watch this. Don't worry.See 1 more doctor answer

I got 3-4 boils (kind of pimples) on my head at the temple area. What is the possible reason for this and how to get rid?
Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well. If the over the counter meds alone don't control your acne after a month of daily use, see a doctor for additional treatment options. It is important to be persistent, and some patients 'get worse before they get better'.

Blocked gland: It sounds most like blocked gland. Basically pimples. There are a lot of glands in the vaginal area. Sweaty rubbing like with sex can cause dead skin and bacteria to get pushed into the pore and block the gland secretion. Showering after sex and applying a heating pad for 10 minutes 2-4 times daily can help. Get an evaluation if that doesn't help within 3 days. Sometimes drainage is needed.
Small cluster of boil like pimples on back. They disappeared when I started to boost my immune system. Itching stops with body powder. Is it my diet?
Diet unlikely cause: If you are eating a fairly balanced diet then it is unlkely that the lesions are related to your diet. Pimples are more likely related to excessive sweating and plugged pores. A cluster of pimples sounds suspicious for zoster or herpes. If you have a flare up, I advise you to have them evaluated.
