I am a Vitilago sufferer, My patches started just before turning 40 almost 10 years ago after being bullied in my work place the stress i went through every day was unbearable to the point my whole body shut down, I have an unattractive thyroid also, My hemoglobin levels were 72, My Immune was shutting down, Literately killing me of, very jaundice, Iron levels were extreme, My Vitilago has at times been dormant, but when i do stress (I do try not to) it wakes up I now have patches about 40% over my body including my face, so to answer your question, Yes stress does contribute to Vitilago, I do try not to. :)
