Does slow healing of scratches and bites indicate I have diabetes ?

I am a 17 year old boy, I weigh about 145 pounds. Recnetly it seems my body is not recovering like it shoud. I worked out and have been sore for almost a week now. A small bite or scratch turns red and stays imprinted, I am just curious what could cause this. Should I be concerned that I have diabetes?

the best thing to get rid of you fear is to get your blood examined for blood sugar. If there is family history of diabetes then you must get investigations.
