Hi. This needs medical attention just as soon as possible. This could either be a case of cat scratch fever, a streptococcal infection, or perhaps the rash is just a coincidence and not related to the scratch. Nevertheless you need to see a doctor right away for blood work and most likely you'll need antibiotics
