Hello and thank you for posting your query
It takes 7 days for a scar to heal if no infection is present.
The scar fades away slowly over a period of time. It may take 1 month or so.
You can have a pain killer for the pain.
If pain does not get relieved, you can have more doses.
Most of the pain killers do not cause ill effect to the breast fed baby.

Thank you
Take care
