A pimple grows under the skin and pushes it out causing it to be red. It occurs for many reasons, including dirt getting clogged in the pores. If there is liquid in it, it's usually an opaque white or slight yellow. A blister occurs at the top of the skin and results from either a burn or from rubbing the skin too much. It is filled with a clear liquid.
