In brief: No

High blood sugar in and of itself does not cause scars or broken skin.
however , Diabetic patients can show chronic skin changes such as thickening or discoloration. Also diabetic skin can be more prone to infection or poor healing if injured , especially , if blood sugar levels remain high.
