In brief: Yes!
Anyone with a focal or extensive staphylococcal infection (or less often with streptococcal infection) has a potential to develop toxic shock syndrome(tss).
What makes certain individuals susceptible to develop tss is still elusive.

In brief: Yes
Toxic shock syndrome results when the toxins produced by bacteria overwhelm our bodies ability to defend against these toxins.
It can happen at any age if the person is exposed to a high enough dose of a "bad enough" bacteria.
