Hi pimples in the form of round rash points towards herpes rather the pimple.examining the fluid of the vesicles under microscope for tzanck cells which are multinucleated gaint cells is confirmation for herpes.it should be treated with zovirax 800 mg five times daily.a antibiotic.a nd application of calamine lotion in the morning and acivir skin ointment in the night can cure it
