Spots randomly spreading throughout the body, becomes big, skin peels off, bleeding, itching, looks like a blister, contagious. What could this be?

What causes spots to come up randomly over body and turn into thumb size spot and skin come off and it then looks like a blister with no skin on it. It will bleed and itch. Grandson had it first, doctor said it was allergic reaction and not contageous. 5 days later little granddaughter started breaking out. Took her to doctor he said it was bug bite(mosquito) probably. Now 4 days later next granddaughter is breaking out.
