mainly itching at night and she has a few blisters that are now bumps

Expert:  Robert Fernando replied 6 years ago.
These symptoms seems to be due to a medical condition called -Scabies.
It is a infection caused by a mite, Sarcoptes scabiei.
In this condition, there is formation of red bumps and blisters .
Also Itching is the most common symptom of scabies.
These symptoms, usually worse at night.
It is treated with these medications-
1. Application of permethrin (Elimite).
2. An oral medication, ivermectin
My opinion is that she should be seen by Physician for prescription of medications.

could my dog have mites cause she itches all the time and could that be where the mites came from

Expert:  Robert Fernando replied 6 years ago.
Well, Dogs and cats are infected by different types of mites than those which infect humans. Also Animals are not a source of spread of human scabies. She can not get scabies from dog.
Direct skin-to-skin contact is the mode of transmission.
Please get it managed from doctor.
