White rash on palms, wrinkly. Is it cystic fibriosis?

My daughter has a white rash on her palms after she washes her hair or takes a shower or swims for that matter. they become very wrinkly and white. I investigated a little and came up with aquagenic wrinkling of the palms. I am now concerned with cystic fibrosis . Should I take her to a dermatologist or her pediatrician at this point? She is 18 years old.
