How do you get this?
It occurs when your nipples rub against coarse fibre shirts during running or jogging. This happens to men and also to women who donít wear a bra.
It is not clear if the condition is caused purely by friction or by the resulting heat.
What does it look & feel like?
Painful, cracked and possibly bleeding nipples occurring immediately after a run.
How do you deal with it?BR>
Use of softer (partly-synthetic) clothes and application of Vaseline to the nipples before jogging.
