Itchy, weeping bumps where cat scracthed

Hey folks

Well once again, back with something else that's been troubling me.

Over the past few days or so, I noticed these white clear bumps where my new cat (he's about 6 months old) scratched me. I didn't realize at first they were scratches though, and when the little bumps itched, I was scratching them like crazy...

Bad idea...

I noticed this past Saturday the bumps had become red and swollen and somewhat yellowish on the tips. They formed a straight scratch line so I figured it was form the cat, as everytime he prods me with his nails eventually gets a bump...but I don't scratch them now so they're fine.

I'm very worried about the scratch on my right bottom wrist though, I've been treating it with neosporin and calamine lotion. Every time I clean the scratch to apply the stuff though, right after I apply the stuff the little bumps weep this clear liquid, that eventually crusts and turns yellow...ick.

I'm just worried this is something serious, I can't find anything about this anywhere and I've looked. I've found stuff on cat scratch fever, but I don't have any other symptoms, other then feeling unusually tired every so often...but not enough to be really alarmed by it.

It itches and hurts mostly, aside from the leaking junk...I'm just wondering if I'm doing the right thing for it, or if I should see somebody about it.

any help would be greatly appreciated!
