Rashes appeared on back and shoulder. Could it be scabies?

My son has a rash that runs from bottom back of his hair line to his shoulders. He has blisters. I was told that it is an allergic reaction to something but I m afraid it may be scabies . How can I tell for sure. They are not running in a striped pattern and I m told that scabies are very painful. He is not complaining of pain except if he touches it.
