In brief: Yes
They may scar even if you don't scratch but it is much worse if you do.
So don't!

In brief: Possibly
It is possible for any cause of skin scratching to scar. Each person has individual variability in that regard.
Simple anti-itching methods such as baking soda baths and calomine lotion may help.
