In brief: No
However, if your blood sugars are high enough and you become dehydrated, the dry skin could exacerbate your eczema.
To my knowledge there is no direct correlation between high blood sugars and eczema alone.

In brief: No
You can become more susceptible to skin infections such as staph, fungus, or candida.
There are other rashes which are more common in diabetics such as granule a annulare, necrobiosis , and a leromyxedema. These are uncommon but do occur associated with diabetes.
