Vitiligo: There are no oral medications to bleach your skin. There are topical agents which can do this, but you would need to have a full and detailed conversation with a dermatologist about it as there are risks. A much safer alternative would be to dry using a blending agent for people with vitiligo called dermblend. If you have not seen a dermatologist for your condition, i suggest you do so.
