Thank you for the query.

Such instant hand and feet wrinkling can be a symptom of dehydration. When the human body has fluid deficiency, the skin looses its tension and is more prone to buckling. You have probably dry mouth or tongue with whitish surface.
I suggest you to start with mineral water intake (like 2 liters a day) and Magnesium 400 mg a day supplementation. You should also take probiotic along with an antibiotic, it should improve your appetite.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
