Most commonly, pimples occur on to the face, in some cases, they also appear on the neck and back of a person. 

Summer boils are caused as a result of the bacteria namely (usually) Staphylococcus aureus that usually lives on the surface of the skin and can also reach the inner layer of the skin in some cases. Summer boils are also the result of excess “ summer heat” which could result in the boils on the skin. These boils start in the form of a round and a small bump which is a little red and swollen in terms of appearance. A summer boil can also be water-filled or pus-filled. As this bump grows, it increases the pressure on to the skin which causes the boil to drain and rupture. Sometimes infection can also  result in watery pus filled blisters which may be highly contagious, this may be impetigo infection. 

Excess intake of fruits such as mangoes and various sugary drinks that we consume in this weather are all known to aggravate both cystic acne and facial abscesses and boils.
