I did a quick search of the forum but couldnt find anything about joggers nipple, which I was suprised about. Plenty of stuff about people getting it but how to do start to fix it once its happened?
I went for a run this morning in the rain and my tshirt got soaked....needless to say I now have very tender nips!

I will be buying a water proof jacket later today :)

For me it's plenty of vaseline pre run ...does the trick.
Others use plasters but I find they come off during a long hot run.

What to do if affected? Don't know what's advised either.

I went to a running shop recently and was surprised to find that you can get tiny hexagon shaped nipple guards.

Maybe give them a try, it would be quite interesting to see how practical they are.

Pmsl - what is joggers nipple?!?

Us girlys generally don't have to worry about this problem unless you run without a sports bra on :eek:

I don't normally get effected by it but I think its due to the wet tshirt sticking to my skin rather than moving around, and because the tshirt was wet and cold, they stuck out like I was smuggling peanuts!!!

LOL owain, if you can try and invest in a moisture wicking running top, it won't prevent it totally but will make running in the rain more bareable, plus if you get sweaty the top won't stick to you either. :d

Y'know what, I'm shocked and apalled! I thought you lot were too sophisticated and sensible to allow alomst every thread to sink very low very quickly in tone... obviously I was wrong... Ahwell...

*gets over it*

Anyway, back on topic (ARGH!); I remember seeing this dude as I was leaving the stadium on sunday - was wearing a cotten grey tee, and he had two lovely smears of blood on his chest coming through... Needless to say I laughed my arse off as soon as he was out of sight... not that I'm an evil bitch, but just made me think "did no one hand you the vaseline before the run?".

I think I would have been fine with the tops I normally wear if it hadnt rained so heavy! If there had been a wet tshirt competition during my run, I reckon I would have won it!

Heading to my local running shop later to see what they have in the way of water proof tops / jackets.

Personally and in my experience,lightweight and natural,as artificial rubs me up the wrong way - painful!
