Intestinal problems?: The main difference if that Celiac Disease causes damage to the intestines and with that, cramping and diarrhea. All of your symptoms except for the watery blisters can be caused by the wheat allergy and possibly other grass grains (barley, rye, oats, rice and rarely corn) Wheat, barley and rye contain gluten. The others don’t but sometimes can be cross-contaminated.
