Runners Nipple


As a male runner who is a little reluctant to wear a bra, I used to suffer from runners nipple for any distances over 5 miles.

Like many of I have tried plasters and vaseline, but none last the distance.

Try painting a little Germolene New Skin Liquid Plaster on your nipple before your run. I have ben doing this for over a year, and my problem is solved.

This works a treat.

    I find that Asda's own version on Elastoplast tape works fine for me. Lasted for 50k last week with no problems and only costs about a quid a roll.

    You should work in Germolines marketing department Neil.
  • Millsy1977, I'm not really trying to get a job in the germolene marketing department, and perhaps cheaper/own brands of liquid plaster will work just as well.

    I have tried a few different types of tape, but being a bit hairy in that region, tape doesn't stick for long for me.

  • There is a lot of hype about all these expensive wicking running singlets but I have found that they are extremely abrasive and for me I get sore if I go anywhere near 10K in them. I am in Thailand and have found a singlet in a large superstore that outperforms the expensive items in the nipple chafing stakes and costs £2. The store is quite big in UK too.

    It may be worth experimenting with your kit. Just a thought. 

  • get your nipples pierced, end of problems

  • Have them removed with an angle grinder

    Nipples? Or the Blog spammers?
  • Shave the nipple tape the nipple image

  • I think I'll just stick to my solution, if you can stand the pun.image

  • Leuktoplast works a treat.

  • I cut 2 holes in the front of all my running tops.

  • Home taping works, but watch out for the RIAA.
