I Feel Self-Conscious About My Man Breasts And Nipples Showing Through My Clothing. What Kind Of Shirts Should I Wear And Which Ones Should I Avoid?

You should avoid wearing any knit fabric that is too thin or clingy. Opt instead for shirts with loose cuts. Darker shades and heavy, woven materials will help you conceal your problem better. For shirts, go for double oxfords rather than thinner materials like poplin. Casual wear is more tricky. Typical polo T-shirts in honeycomb material would work better than single jerseys which "hug" the contours of the body.

I Ran Long Distance Recently And Felt A Slight Burning Sensation On My Nipples. I Looked Down And Saw Blood Stains On My Jersey And Realised That My Nipples Were Bleeding. Why Did That Happen And How Can I Prevent It?

Bleeding nipples are common among long-distance male runners, especially marathoners. This is due to repeated chafing of the jersey against the chest, resulting in abrasion. The problem worsens with the distance of the run. It can be prevented, though. Wear shirts made of sweat-wicking fabric which keeps the skin dry. Use protective barriers like petroleum jelly (Vaseline) or cover the nipples with a bandage or a nipple shield. Or simply go topless. With these measures, you will not have to go through this unpleasant experience again.
