Hello ..thanks for your query

Pimples may present in various forms in various people .Also , during the course it can be present in many forms in the same person.Then can be blackhead/whiteheads,papules,pustules or nodules.At a point of time you may have all or even one of this.The treatment hence is varied and depends on what is present.
You can apply a cream containing Kojic acid twice daily to lighten the spots.However, to prevent these spots , the mainstay of therapy will be anti acne medication.They may be oral/topical antibiotics or retinoids.
You should visit a dermatologist soon to begin the treatment.Early treatment prevent the chances of scarring in ones face.
Hope this is helpful.TAKE CARE!
