Welcome to Healthcaremagic forum,
You have not mentioned the color of the patch ,is it milky white patch or it is just a light colored patch as compared to your normal skin color.Kindly mention your age too.probably it is P.ALBA,which happens due to cold whether, dry skin and excessive exposure to sunlight .Just use a mild moisturizer on face daily and a good sunscreen daily when you go out in sun.
Take care,
