In brief: On rare occasions

Dr. Westfield is correct.
The condition is called dermatitis herpetiformis, an intensely itchy sometimes blistering rash associated with gluten enteropathy.

In brief: Sometimes

A condition called dermatitis herpetic prime is caused by a gluten sensitivity just as in celiac disease.
The condition is diagnosed by a biopsy and blood tests. It is treated with oral Dapsone and avoidance of gluten-wheat products. With strict a oxidant e the Dapsone can be gradually reduced or eliminated.

There is no link but symptoms can manifest in any way.
...And skin is the largest organ in/on your body.
