In brief: Easy question
Macules are flat.
Papules are raised above the surrounding level of the skin. Hives are itchy papules where each hives lasts less than 24 hours. Hives often last for days to weeks but an individual hive lasts less than a day, resolves without leaving a mark on the skin, and may be replaced with other hives.
