Zits or Celiac?

I've had acne for the last six years. Sometimes it has been so bad that people have asked me if I had chicken pox. My mother says it's not really a very bad case, it's just that most people use stuff to disappear their acne. I have never done anything to get rid of the zits. I think that they're sort of ugly but not really worth doing anything about.
In the last two weeks, I've developed big things mostly on my neck and back but also two on my thighs, that might or might not be pimples. They don't do anything if I squeeze them, they're awfully big for pimples (imagine a monster pimple), they itch and kind of hurt, and they're sort of scaly.
I'm wondering if these could be that celiac symptom, dermititis herpetiformis, or if I'm just being a hypochondriac.
I am also wondering: If I used an anti-zit thingy on something that was really a different sort of skin problem, would it still go away? If I used an anti-zit cream and the things didn't go away, would that prove that they're not zits?

Could it be from the T? Or is it too early for that?

I dunno, I think zit cream could help zits from a variety of sources but it certainly doesn't work any miracles (I've been using some form of it since I was 9).
