Joggerís nipples

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.
