More appropriately, it appears to be a superficial partial thickness burn where along with epidermis, some parts of the dermis is damaged. However, the exact depth of the burn can be known from examination only. This becomes evident after 24 to 48 hours which happened in your case.
Initially, there is no blistering, there is some damage to blood vessels as well, leading to accumulation of plasma, proteins and some cells which leads to scab formation. As I said, scarring is not usual, but some amount of pigmentation may persist which may minimize with time. All the best.
