Boils and its spots, whatever you are describing is nothing but teenage acne.
Teen acne generally begins between the ages of ten and thirteen. The most common progression starts on the nose, then spreads to the forehead, chin, and cheeks. In more severe cases, acne may affect the neck, shoulders, chest, back and upper arms.
Most of the acne resolve by 20 yrs, but sometimes it can persists in adulthood.
Hormonal changes are responsible for teen acne.
Treatment includes -
Gentle cleansing with warm water and a mild soap, such as Dove or Cetaphil.
Applying benzoyl peroxide (such as Brevoxyl or Triaz).
Applying salicylic acid (such as Propa pH or Stridex).

If acne becomes severe like cyst formation , treatment includes antibiotic creams, retinoids, drainage of large cysts/pimples.
Stress is also reason for pimples , so stay away from it.
Do not break open those boils, it will lead to scar formation. Scars are difficult to treat.
Take care.

Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
