Possible: Your puffy nipples could be a form of gynecomastia or swollen due to irritation. In the first case, having them raised up, could make them more sensitive. In the second case, your nipples may be more sensitive, causing the body to react by swelling. There are many causes, so an evaluation by your doctor may help determine the problem.

Probably gynecomasti: Many young men have a mild case of gynecomastia, with only puffy nipples. Others have a more serious case. Most require surgery for correction, even mild puffy nipples. See my webinar on youtube - search dr. George pope. Or visit www.Gynecomastia.Org, a great forum.

Most young men have gynecomastia early in puberty, which usually resolves. If concerned, may be better to see your doctor, to determine severity and get furtehr recommendations for evaluation. If you are done with puberty, additional evaluatio may be needed prior to correction
