Xeroderma Pigmentosum is a genetic skin condition in which the skin and tissue covering the eye is very sensitive to ultraviolet light. When the sun hits this skin, it damages the DNA and cannot repair itself. Because the skin cannot repair, children usually develop skin cancer by the age of 5. Symptoms of Xeroderma Pigmentosum include sunburns that don’t heal, blistering, crusting, oozing after minimal sun exposure, and patches of discolored skin. Most people with Xeroderma Pigmentosum will die of skin cancer in early adulthood, but this can be delayed with the use of high SPF sunscreen and dark glasses.
