Brief Answer:
They are hives

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the information.

The lesions you have appear to be urticaria due to allergy. The allergy could be due to some sort of vegetative matter. These hives would surely come down over time once you have stopped the exposure to the allergen. You can speed up the process by taking antihistaminic medications.
