I burnt my skin on hand, now it is spreading

Hi im a 21 yr old male. When i was 17 i suffered minor burns on my skin on front of my right hand. It all just started with a drops of boiling oil falling on my hand. Initially the skin had swollen at the pt of contact. It left behind three scars at the pt of contact. But soon it started spreading from three dots to a straight line throughout my hand. It is not stopping. It does not irritate me but it is continuosly spreading. Please reply what am i suffering from?

Hi. Is it just a scar or the skin over the area feels tighter than the surrounding skin?
