    OUCH! I remember the worst chafing when I ran a marathon a couple of years ago. All that blood...can't believe how I didn't feel it. I'm obviously more careful about it now, but every now and then my nips still get irritated. icon_mad.gif Is there a certain kind of ointment or alike to prevent chafing? I'm started to get annoyed by using band-aids when I run out of ideas.

    I that regard I seem to be blessed. I can run for hours without noticing any chafing at my nipples, or freeball without any problems there. The only thing that gets me occasionally is a bit of a rash on the chest when surfing without a rashguard; ny skin doesn't seem to like the glass finish on some boards too much.

    Body Glide is KING! Pick it up at any good Running Store in town. And NEVER go on a LONG RUN without it!

    Yes, a product like BodyGlide can work, which is popular with bicyclists, too, mainly for the saddle area. Women bikers use it on their nipples and under their breasts, as well. Tape can also help, though a man's chest hairs can be a separate problem.

    I have been trying to not wear a shirt where the material is heavier. I go for more of a jersey knit material.

    Seriously, you must have some big ass nips to be chafing when you run.

    Don't wear cotton shirts. Wear lightweight shirts made of synthetic materials.

    Clearly from someone who has not done any long distance running.

    Bodyglide works alright but never lasts long enough.

    Vaseline is gross and will stain your shirt so it looks like you're lactating but it works!!

    Every marathon, my nips, pits, butt crack and groin get layered in the stuff and it stays strong for the full 26 miles.

    Body Glide or NipGuards are your best bet. Do not be the guy with a bloody trail that everyone can see and be horrified by...

    Run shirtless (I never ever run with a shirt) or (better yet) run nude! www.NudeRuns.com icon_cool.gif

    vaseline....

    when I ran track I spent a few months with the long distance runners....needless to say I wasn't happy and neither were my nipples. For the most part our coach encouraged us to run shirtless and if not then he had vaseline on hand.

    Avoid cotton shirts. They are the worst for absorbing sweat and getting heavy and rubbing. This was stated earlier, but it's worth repeating.
    I use silicon lube (like gun oil or platinum wet) around my ankles and between my toes and other regions and it works great. Lighter and less messy than vaseline and lasts a long time.
