Zinc oxide tape works a treat. Doesn't come off in hot/cold/wet conditions!

Bit grim but my mate swears by compeed blister plasters - painful to remove though apparently!
Are they trying to heel their nipple back to skin?

Micropore tape is far superior to Vaseline in my opinion. it stays on for 4 hours +, comes off easily and is far less messy. I hate having vaseliney fingers when running! for half marathon + distances it is useful for underarms though.

No potions or creams, just a tight technical vest (it doesn’t move, so it doesn’t rub) and loose technical shorts with a liner – if you get the right fit and materials you don’t need anything else IMHO.

A bra made from a ping pong ball cut in half and some knicker elastic.
