bleeding nipples....

#1
on a recent 10 miler run my nipples actually bled! (I'm a bloke don't get excited!)

does anyone know if there anything you can use to protect this area apart from layers of vaseline?

cheers

ps I was wearing a standard running top not wire wool!

Know the problem all to well especially marathon training, I use the good old 3M micropore tape, two pieces over the nips and a dab of vaseline on top of it and hey presto no blood!

I've got a jar of pickled ones if you need spares.

thanks for the sensible suggestion- although the rubber suckers do look interesting!

The only problem with using tape is the in-voluntary waxing process involved when getting it off - I was hoping there might be a 'jessie' option but it looks like I'll just have to be a man and grin and bear it!

cheers!

Wear a tight t-shirt that does not move up and down as you run as you are running thus causing the rub. Alternativly apply lube, plasters, nipple cups etc. to your hearts content

You guys need to consider Occam's Razor at times.
