Glacial acetic acid attack

On September 2014; a 26 year old female was attacked with with Glacial acetic acid and sustained serious skin damage in different parts of her body including arms and leg. The victim received moderate medical attention following the attack. I am posting some more details about the case and would appreciate your advice:

1- Is skin going to heal on the long run? If not, how successful can plastic surgery be in such cases?
2- Any advice on the best pain killers to use which will have mild side effects? She is now on Tramadol in tablet and injection form.
3- The patient had skin graft operation from leg skin to arm. However, the patient is still getting contractions in arm.
4- Skin allergy. Uses loratadine.
5- Feeling of higher temperature in affected areas. Uses Silicon Gel or Ice Patches.
5- Deep muscle pain.

Your help and support in such difficult times are highly appreciated.
