Help I am suffering from jogger's nipple, any advice would be most welcome?

Although it may sound mildly amusing, there’s really nothing funny about jogger’s nipple at all. Jogger’s nipple most commonly affects men, and although it seems trivial it can really affect your running performance. Combat it by wearing non-abrasive clothing, which is reasonably tight fitting and has sweat-wicking properties.

If it’s particularly bad you can protect problem areas with a lubricant such as petroleum jelly to create a nipple-protecting barrier between your clothing and your skin.
