Greetings- these are not acne or pimples but these are mostly likely insect bite lesions or folliculitis - I strongly feel you must see a qualified dermatologist near you to get examined and be seen by him for confirmed diagnosis and treatment - since the porblem seems to be recurrent for long. For now you must stop sratching it and can apply a moisturizer to reduce the itch. Hope this helps. warm regards
