It might be the puberty changes that your son is experiencing due to excessive production of hormone levels, but still I think you need to check it with a dermatologist to make sure these pimples do not spread more and more and cause discomfort to the body.

Dear parent,
your baby is probably suffering from viral exanthem.In most cases these kind of rash subsides in 1-2 wks time.Best thing is you consult with a Dematologist & treatment remains symptomatic ie application of some soothing lotion+tab Avil SOS.If you wish you can send his photographs on my email

The history clearly suggests that your son is suffering from Chicken-Pox.
Consult your family doctor. Its a viral disease and highly infectious.
So, keep other children away from your son.
Do not allow him to go to school for at least one week.
Take anti-viral medicines, anti-histaminics,anti-pyretics.
Do not rub the vesicles.
Do not use soap or any irritant substance.
Keep all his cloths and belongings away from other's. wash them in hot water and detergent.
Its your moral duty to take necessary precautions & avoid spreading of the infection.

welcome to healthcare magic forum,
Your kid is suffering from chicken pox.Symptoms usually go away without treatment, but because the infection is very contagious, an infected child should stay home and rest until the symptoms are gone.For symptomatic relief
1.bath the baby with cool or lukewarm water
2.pat the body getly,don't rub the pimples
3.Use soothing lotion- calamine lotion over the lesions.
4.use anti histamine for itching,paracetamol for pain and fever
5.find a doctor if
-high continued fever for >4days
-severe cough or breathing difficulty
-pus coming from rash
-severe headache,drowsiness
