Thanks for posting your query.

Genetic conditions can present at any age.

You would need to apply sunscreen over all exposed parts of your body before going out.

You can take anti-histaminics for itching.

I suggest you to consult a dermatologist.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
