I was going through some old close in my closet and put on one of the t shirt and a couple of minutes later i felt itchy and immediately took off the tshirt, but about a half an hour later i noticed 5 tiny pimples from the right side of my next to my left shoulder. And it feels like something is on me. Should i be concerned?View Thread

Old clothes contain allergens as well as mites. If the bumps do not dissipate in 5-7 days I would consult your doctor. In the meantime, try 1% hydrocortisone cream (this is sold over-the-counter) and is safe for short periods of use.
