Abnormaly large nipples (male, fifteen years)

Patient

Q: I'm 15 years old, about 145 pounds and fairly thin. I've been looking all over the internet for an answer on how to get rid of this but it's always the same: "it's just a phase in puberty, it'll go away in a few months" well this is sertainly not the case. I don't know any pleasent way of saying this, but my problem is very embarrasing: my nipples are "puffy" and WAY to big for me to be a ble to be comfortable. If anyone has a way to get rid of them instantly, or any way of making them go away faster, please, PLEASE help me. i never want to take off my shirt cause it's too embarrasing. I've been like this for about a year, maybe longer but they haven't always been like this... please help
