Tucks Medicated Pads
Witch hazel is an odd-sounding name, but there’s nothing magical about how it helps to ease hemorrhoids. Witch hazel is an astringent that will help relieve both irritation and burning. Tucks Medicated Pads contain witch hazel, and they’re also dye free and safe to flush into both sewer and septic systems.
“During my first pregnancy, I had terrible constipation, which led to terrible hemorrhoids,” said Sonia Ng, MD, a mom of two sons and a pediatrician and expert in sedation at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Pediatric Care at Princeton Health Care System in Princeton, NJ. “By my third trimester, they were very painful and itchy. I found that Tucks Medicated Pads really helped. I tried to use over-the-counter hemorrhoid creams as little as possible because I wasn’t sure how well they had been studied in pregnant women.”
