It seems that these "pimples" are actually skin lesions filled with either pus or pustules. It is impossible to conclude if the lesions are filled with vesicles and pustules, or not (papules). Pustules are typical during bacterial infections. Vesicles (pimples filled with serous liquid) are typical during herpes. Papules are typically allergic reactions due to contact dermatitis or can also be warts caused by human papiloma viral infections. You may consult your primary health provider to help diagnose the pimples ...or a dermatologist, if necessary.
