Hi the erythema and burning sensation is by chemical used by u for depigmentation.sometimes depigmentation itself when exposed to sunlight can cause this erythema as the chemical causing irritant dermatitis do not use it again.instead use of steriods stops the progression of vitiligo and application of sunscreen protects from sunlight.u can use dermicolor suitable to ur skin daily once to cover ur vitiligo patches
