White Oval Patch on Cheek

Whenever I burn, I burn mostly on my nose and and cheek bones. Lately, I've realized that there is this oval shaped, white patch with a sort of waxy feel to it, where I usually burn the worst. Is this just some kind of scar that I could possibly get? Or, might it be something worse?
