Happens to me, too. I attributed it to the fact that I have a slight cat allergy.

Heard the old saying cat scratch fever?

It is something they have in their claws. Maybe because they are dirty. I use peroxide on mine and it goes away in a few hours.

Nope, but always clean a scratch immediately with peroxide and apply tri-antibiotic, and it'll be okay.
