Welcome to HCM,
Scabies can not spread through air.
It spreads via close contact, using his clothes, towels etc.
I do not think merely visiting your spread scabies.
Problem your children having might be due to mosquito bite or other bites.
And as you have under gone treatment for scabies, nothing to worry.
Ok and bye.
