Hive looking rash on limbs. Could it be scabies?

I have a hive-looking rash on my arms and legs which is causing me to rub blisters on my skin. My doctor thought scabies and treated me and my family, but nothing had changed. Also the traditional locations for scabies are crevasses like arm pots and groin , but none of us have any rashes there. Only me and my brother have it.
