Brief Answer:
Not to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to HealthcareMagic..
I thank you for posting your query here..

I read your question completely and have understood it well enough..

All I can see is, this is related to some kind of allergy.
Because the lesions are neither painful nor itches..

And I strongly suspect, swimming as the cause for such lesions..

I suggest you to stop swimming for few days, may be 4 to 5 days and see if the lesions subside on its own.

Sometimes, drug induced such lesions are seen..
But we shall try the most common reason, swimming and see how it goes..

Hope I have cleared your doubt..
In case you need further assistance, please let me know.
Or you can close the question and rate.
Take care..
