You might try an antibiotic cream. Erythromycin ointment can be tried intitially . Bath twice daily. Also please avoid getting sweaty too much and make sure you change the bed sheets and pillow cases often. Unclean bed sheets/pillow cases can perpetuate the problem. Also please avoid touching the pimples. It will introduce bacteria from your hand which will perpetuate the problem too.
