Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
1.) Vitiligo disease is not mentioned as a punishment in Islam nor is it mentioned in the Quran.
When Allah (Subhana WaTa’ala) has inflicted a person with a disease he has done so for the reason of testing one and for the reason of punishing one. As in the case of Ayub (A’lahi Salaam) Allah (Subhana WaTa’ala) tested him with the disease of leprosy in which he succeeded. He did not inflict him with this disease for the purpose of punishment. Contrary to that was the infliction of the disease onto Samree, whom was being punished in his situation for his disobedience.
2.) As for the oath, we need to know how it was taken to enable us to give a ruling on it.
And Allah knows best
