The skin is the internal organ of expression of human psychological activity. A large number of clinical cases that psychological factors can not be ignored is a cause of vitiligo or exacerbations. It is estimated, about two-thirds of the cases the onset or development stage lesions with trauma, overworked and over thinking, anxiety, sadness, even the spook, overnight, sleep soundly is dream disturbance spirit excessive tension situation.

The use of tyrosine synthetic melanin pigment cells, nerve cells by tyrosine synthesis of catecholamines. Catechol and DOPA is similar in structure. When the mental stress, sympathetic nerve, increase in catecholamine synthesis, on melanin synthesis constitute competitive inhibition.
