    Right, last night I ran my personal best (on the treadmill) but unfortunatly my nipples didn't come out too good. Both were sore and infact the right one started to bleed a wee bit...

    so what do you runners do to prevent Runner's Nipple? (Does anyone else get them?)

    I don't, but the guy in the office that does either uses vaseline or plasters.

    Micropore its like selotape but its not very sticky

    They use it for medical purposes like holding you bandages on

    You can get it in most chemists :)

    I used to get it off my old football teams cheap arse kit

    Never had it, cheap school uniforms have given me nipples of steel! :D

    honestly in year 9 of high school all the lads had bloody nipples... :p Worst I ever hurt my nipple running was when I ran the Keswick 10k and the safety pins holding my number on came undown and stick into my nipple... :p

    Never had a nipple problem, but I hear vaseline does the trick

    How can your nipples bleed from running?

    I've had to use a bit of vaseline before. Better to do that than let it get worse.

    I only ever had it if I wore thicker t-shirts or particularly on a cold day.

    Careful, rub them too hard and you'll rub them off, apparently ;).

    I wasn't taking the **** - If you get nipple problems just wear a softer shirt. I run and never have a problem.

    I wear those "breathable" footballer type tops which are quite light...I suppose the fact that I've got mini man-boobs doesn't help!

    Synthetic fabrics dont help. And use vaseline, though it can be a bit embarrasing buying it :p
