Child with reddish itchy on the knees. Has coeliac disease. IS that the reason?

My daughter age 9 has red spots with a white head primarily around her knees, but also legs. We were holidaying in New Zealand and she had them around her bottom. I took her to pharmacy and he thought she had been bitten and gave a cream to relieve. Spots went but have now come back on knees, little itchy but no other affects. She is also coeliac .

Considering the fact you took a drug already, and also the fact you changed environment, its worth while consulting pediatrician. To say the patches are due to coeliac disease, its almost impossible at this age and stage.
Thanks and regards,
