Cystic fibrosis?

My hands tend to wrinkle fast in the water, especially hot water or when the weather is hot and I sweat. They wrinkle in about 2/5 minutes, it is not severe. I am afraid because I read that this is related to cystic fibrosis and now I think I have it. I also have other symptoms like post nasal drip, seasonal allergies and mucus stuck on my thoath. I also sweat a lot but my sweat is not very salty.

My sister also the wrinkling hands.

So my question is could I have atypical/cystic fibrosis or at least be a carrier and what is my life expectancy? My doctor says I'm too old to be diagnosed with this, I'm 25 years old.
