So this is actually not trolling, serious question.
I have also looked at what-can-i-do-for-sore-nipples and is-it-harmful-not-to-wear-an-underwear-while-running as well as a couple of questions that suggest bodyglide etc, I use bodyglide elsewhere, but i don't feel this is the answer in my case.
I feel my question is different from the above because I'm male, with a hairy chest- the questions above don't take this into account. .
Common solutions are band-aids and bodyglide (as mentioned). To use band-aids I'd have to shave to get them to stick. Shaving would open up another can of worms with rubbing from short hairs on my trisuit, which I'd prefer to avoid.
I can't imagine bodyglide working in this case.
Are there any solutions besides shaving and using band aids?
The following details are more case specific to me, but feel free to take them into account if you like:
- I'm doing long distance triathlon
- The run is where the friction happens
- I'm not overweight
- I wear a lycra tri-suit (obviously this is tightly fitted)
- The rubbing is worst when the suit is wet, I can minimise wetness by not pouring water on my front, but I'm running long distance triathlons in France, some wetness is to be expected
