Exclamation Urticaria? *ADVICE PLEASE!*

Woke up this morning, normal time to feed Willie. I noticed an '8' shaped lump on his neck, weird... and of course me being me I panicked. I have left him in his stable so I can keep am eye on him. I went out later this morning to look at it and I noticed another lump higher up on his neck, incoperating his crest, these are both on the left side of the neck. There are three or four very small ones on the other side of his neck. The weird thing is if they are hives, would they itch? He doesnt seem bothered about them at all. He is his usual, cheeky self.
Sorry I don't have any pictures.
Vet is on his/her way.
Anything I need to de befor the vet gets here?

So the vet centre said someone will be out this morning, it is 11:25 now so that's not likely... although they did saythey would call if otherwise.
Willie is still fine, appart from being annoyed and wanting to go out. I managed to keep him still enough to take some pictures.

Right side of neck- this is the side he always lies on, just for a bit of info

Looks like hives or simply bug bites.

If the vet is on the way I say just wait until they get there.a

Yep, it looks like an allergic reaction to something. Could be insect bites or any topical product you have used on him--fly spray, shampoo, etc.

Thanks guys, vet came and said the same thing, they are still not bothering him. The 2 on his left side are fluid under the skin. We don't know what caused it, I think flies.

I always just use benadryl when dealing with hives.

Some pictures from this afternoon (10 hours later)

Didnt take any of his right side because there is nothing to see, appart from very small bite marks, no swelling.
