    Is it unusual to get nipple chafing from running? any ideas how to prevent it?

    The obvious would be to run shirtless...

    No I don't think it's unusual at all, it took me a couple of tries to find the right shirt fabric and size that didn't chafe, Nike Dri-Fit worked best for me. I've also heard of guys putting a Band-Aid on, but I'm too hairy for that. Speaking of that, make sure you trim any stray hairs away from your nipple area, if they get bound up between your shirt and skin it can cause friction.

    Could be the shirt you are wearing. I find the shirts that are loose-fitting and designed for running are the best.

    I've been wearing a grey cotton t - a little loose but not too loose. Maybe one of my sleeveless poly ones would be better.

    Pasties ? icon_cool.gif

    I was presiding over a half marathon a few years ago
    and it was a windy day down close to the beach
    and the nipple chaffing was the worst that it could be

    all the guys came across the finish line looking like they'd been shot twice
    Blood was actually soaking their shirts icon_eek.gif

    I have several of those they are great.

    I especially like the Under Armour shirts, both the loose-fitting and tight-fitting. When playing softball in the summer I wear one underneath my uniform and it socks up all the sweat.

    I've run 4 marathons -- used vaseline each time and it worked great.


    And the application of the vaseline feels really good... LOL

    I buy that anti-chaffing stuff that you can buy at running stores and it looks like a stick of deodorant, but it works GREAT!!!

    Band aids, and Vaseline work well. Vaseline will stain so you could try one of the expensive preperations like Body Glide, at most running stores.

    If all else fails, just ditch the shirt.icon_smile.gif

    It is the worst feeling. I wore band-aids for days, and when I took them off my nipple hair was pulled off. It was the worst.
