Urgent care or ER: If the area was white, cold and stiff or hard and if it then becomes red and swollen as it warms, you need to seek professional medical assistance.

Have patience: At the age of 19 you may have skin that is at its most reactive stage in life. Such hyper-reactivity usually settles with age. The fact that the scratches are only a week old bodes well for their ultimate resolution.
