    Pimples are more common in people with oily skin. Take measures to avoid excessive oil on your body. Avoid oil based face creams, wash face repeatedly with water and donot use soap all the time, use a very mild soap. If you have not used any medication before first try benzoyl peroxide local application cream. If pimples remain refractory to this then you can go for systemic antibiotics like Doxycycline and Isotretinoin cream for local application but before starting that see a dermatologist.
