I too found that I was allergic to water - probably the chlorine in it as I get the same type of reaction if I go swimming in pools with too much chlorine.
I use a Brita water filter. It isn't really a cheap option because the filters that have to be renewed every month are expensive - but needs must. I can't drink tap water anyway, without terrible headaches and sore red eyes. The Brita makes all the difference.
I'm really not sure if it is connected with the celiac condition but the problem seemed to start about the same time as the celiac symptoms did 25 years ago (and I was diagnosed only 8 weeks ago!)
All the best to you -
