Yup, totally common. I think more in men, I guess our bras help us out.

My hubby just uses band aids. He doesn't find they sweat off.

Runners nipple is not uncommon.

An adhesive tape beforehand is probably the cheapest way of preventing it.

Hi GARTHBDS,

You may want to try a product called Body Glide and if that doesn't work, you can use nipple guards (sold at specialty running stores) or just band-aids, although if you sweat a lot they may not stay on.

Ok this caught me totally by surprise but after my run I noticed my nipples were bleeding from my shirt rubbing against it I guess. For now my solution is to run shirtless on my treadmill in the basement. However, when spring comes I would like to run outside and I don't want to do it shirtless. Is there something that can help stop this? I have never heard of this before as I have no runner friends.
