welcome to healthcare magic forum
vitiligo is complex skin condition ,in most case it has no systemic involvement .
so as far as my knowledge is concern it has no relation with all these symptoms
yes,due to presence of other condition ,vitiligo may be worsen .
immunity seems to play the role in vitiligo
but the exact reason for it ,still not identified
so dont worry about vitiligo much
