Wondering if anyone has a soln on this one. When I go running - especially the slightly long ones - my nipple/areola area starts hurting from the constant abrasions from the sweaty wet Tee. Any soln other than surgery?

Hey I got an answer to this one on a runners forum. The trick is to stick a round band aid or something called a nipguard (lol) before the run. I had thought that the nipple chaffing happens to only guys with gyne but apparently it happens to skinny marathoners too. Hmm, dificult to shrug of the feeling that anything breast related is due to gyn...

Yep.  Band aids.  I just got gyne in the last two months and I believe it may have started due to chaffin my nips surfing labor day... then trying to bulk up when I started lifting after 5 years of atrophy.  

My doctor said that running and chaffing the nips could actually cause it grow.  ... Babies sucking nipples cause them to milk.  You keep rubbing your nips and you may too.  

My doc said it is VERY important to STOP TOUCHING IT!
