is there a way to treat inverted nipples?

Yes: First have an evaluation by a breast surgeon to ensure there is no underlying malignant pathology causing the inversion. This may include a physical exam and breast imaging. If there is no suspicious findings, the inverted nipple(s) can be corrected by a plastic surgeon. Make an appointment to discuss it with him/her.
