If you are allergic to the bites, then they will itch for weeks. If you scratch them, they will itch until you quit scratching them. They can cause hard bumps called nodules if you continue to rub or scratch. Also, kill the fleas in the house, yard, pets. Other bites can look like flea bites such as scabies and other mites. Hydrocortisone cream and oral benadryl will help the itch.

I want to know what is the difference between flea bites and celiac disease rash?

Flea bites vs rash

Fleas only jump about knee high so the bites are usually below the knee and look like insect bites, firm red itchy-painful nodules, some may have pustules. Rash due to celiac disease is dermatitis herpetiformis, grouped crusted red bumps, urticarial papules or vesicles on extensor surfaces, such as elbows, knees, buttocks, back. Because rash is very itchy, usually we see mostly scratches on exam

My 10 yr old daughter has a rash that looks like dry skin with blisters or flea bites. She says it has been there for months back right knee/calf.

Could Be, but..

Blistering
To help you I would need a few more clues. Right now i would say it could be a lot of things. As a general rule if its dry its okay to put hydrocortisone, but if it looks damp Lotrimin to start. Could be Eczema, could be Tinea and the treatments for either could make the other worse. I would suggest a visit to your PCP, or a Dermatologist.
