I've got pimples/allergy in the scalp (2-3 pimples), over the eyebrows and on the eyelids. A dermatologist told me it might be herpes. What are the precautions I should be taking except the medicines referred?

It looks like herpes zoster. Please start aciclovir or valaciclovir tablets at the earliest with due recommendation and prescription from a qualified dermatologist. See a ophthalmologist at the earliest to rule out eye involvement. Take lots of oral fluids, light nutritious diet and adequate rest. You'll also need some pain killers to reduce discomfort and inflammation. Follow up with your dr as advised. Further queries may be sent on follow up messaging. Warm regards
