Red blisters on legs, thighs, post scabies phase. Family history of condition. Treatment?

I think I am in the post- scabies phase. I have big, red blisters on my legs now (as well as small rashes and bumps on my thighs and forearms). Should I pop the blisters or leave them alone? They are sore to the touch but not itchy in the least. Are the blisters a good sign? Are there also any noticeable signs (that I can look for) that tells me the mites are dying/dead? I feel like, even after the Permethrin , my family is still fighting this thing to the death.

Hi ,
Thanks for writing in.
The condition can be scabies with bacterial infection.
A visit to your primary care children specialist or dermatologist will be required for proper diagnosis.
Till the time you can apply a soothing lotion like calamine lotion or aloe vera lotion.
Oral and topical antibiotics will be required.
Anti scabies lotion application will be required to be repeated.
Hope this helps.
