I think my rabbits have scabies - does anyone have any experience with this?

Hi,
One of my rabbits had very sore feet so took her to vets around 5/6 weeks ago. The vet diagnosed a skin condition, she taped the rabbit's paw and checked the tape under a microscope and said there were no parasites.. Anyway, in the past few weeks the condition has spread to the rabbits' nose which has gone black and the other rabbit seems to have it too on her ears, the ends of them have turned crusty. In the meantime, I have been very very itchy myself over the past few weeks and covered in sores and it was googling this last night that led me to pictures of scabies on rabbits and it 100% looks like what my poor buns have.
I'm going to phone the vet when they open at 9am and try to get an appointment for today. In the meantime, has anyone had any experience of this and might be able to offer some advice? Thanks
