Second-degree burn mark/scar?

My 14 month old daughter suffered a second degree burn due to hot tea that spilled on her on her left nipple and the entire left torso.

Per doctors this was a second degree mostly a superficial burn (as far as they can see). They have put on Mepilex pad and neosporin as needed.

Beyond the short-term pain, I am more worried about long term issues:

1) Will this lead to her having permanent mark/scar? Would there be a pigmentation change?

2) Is there any risk to her nipple/mammary glands? Given she is a girl, I am thinking if breastfeeding/milk production will be an issue?

Appreciate any inputs.

Re: Second-degree burn mark/scar?

I was burned when I was a year old on everywhere except my torso. She may have tight skin on the affected area and if exposed to sun even years from now, her scar will be prone to sunburn before anywhere else. If you feel I could be of any further assistance, please feel free to ask.
