Welcome to Health care magic.

Sensitiveness of the nipples at this age juncture is quite possible because of the hormonal derangement.

Male hormones(testosterone are less produced at this age so female hormone do start working more and thus produce some feminish characteristics to develop.

Many times people develop gynaecomastia (enlarged breast) because of this hormonal disbalance.

This is one of the important cause of painful tender nipples at this age.

Anti inflammatory analgesic drugs along with the hot fomentation will of some help.

Hope your query is answered with your satisfaction.

Please feel free for more clarification.
