Nipguards - Nipple chafe protection for runners
Nipguards® , from RunGuards are a unique product that only runners will appreciate. Not all runners suffer from it, but when you do, runner’s nipple can be very painful and can even hinder your performance.
We’ve all seen the victims with blood stains on their running shirts at a marathon and although this is the result of severe nipple rub, even mild nipple rub can be painful. A combination of the salts in your sweat and the material in some running clothing creates a sandpaper-like effect on the sensitive skin of your nipples, an effect that is generally more common in men than women.
Nipguards® combat this effect by forming a protective layer over the nipple. However they are far more effective than simple plasters or tape due to their patented raised design, this creates a comfortable space for the skin to sit in; also the adhesive sticks to the nipple itself rather than the surrounding skin, which ensures that Nipguards® won’t fall off; which is the main problem when using plasters.
Some runners have tried using petroleum jelly or other lubricants; however, these almost always stain your running clothing and is only effective until it wears off. Nipguards® won’t wear off and they have been tested in all weather conditions and remain effective even after an ultramarathon!.
Don’t let something as simple as skin rub ruin your workout, try Nipguards® for the peace of mind that you can push yourself, without the risk of sore, irritating nipple rub.
