Hi everyone here that is probably flipping because you want to get rid of your nipple problems.
I went through what you all felt and I would say that there is no solutions without a cost. Surgery would take a few thousand dollars. -yep this is kind of the only effective solution here (well and maybe some remedies that may or may not help).
This is no life threatening problem. It does not affect your health, at all. The only problem that this thing causes is social problem. Having puffy nipples as a teen may really undermine your confidence (by a lot for my case). I would stop doing activities I love such as playing football. I would even have to change the way I walk, wear oversized shirt. Haha I think most of you can relate to this.
All individuals, whether male or female, possess both female hormones (estrogens) and male hormones (androgens). During puberty, levels of these hormones may fluctuate and rise at different levels, resulting in a temporary state in which estrogen concentration is relatively high. Studies regarding the prevalence of gynecomastia in normal adolescents have yielded widely varying results, with prevalence estimates as low as 4% and as high as 69% of adolescent boys. These differences probably result from variations in what is perceived to be normal and the different ages of boys examined in the studies.
