In brief: Pimple like things

If these are really pimples due to acne, stopping nuts and peanut butter and chocolate and cutting down on dairy products will help prevent new ones.
Wash with neutrogena acne wash and apply a bpo (benzoyl peroxide) cream or lotion -- something like clearasil or stri-dex -- on the affected areas at night. If it persists, see a dermatologist who may prescribe an oral antibiotic.
