Welcome to HCM.
You have not mentioned whether it produces itching. It could be scabies which is a highly contagious disease. Since the whole family is affected, it is certainly highly infectious and you should not ignore it. Consult a dermatologist immediately and let him examine it and do the necessary investigations and treat you accordingly.
