Dermatologist 's  Response

Since more than one family members are having the same problem, so there is a strong possibility of it being insect bit or vector dermatitis. Even scabies needs to be rules out.
In both of these conditions, there is development of red lesions which can occur in many people of the same family.
I would advise you to clean the beddings once and see if the development of new lesion still persist and consult a dermatologist for proper assessment and treatment.

Hope it helps
Best wishes for a speedy recovery
