A 35-year-old member asked:
Is there an inexpensive non-prescription wipe other than tucks (witch hazel)?

Witch hazel: Tucks pads contain witch hazel as the active ingredient. You can get this in generic form and some cotton pads. This should work fine. Tucks shouldn't be used as wipes. They should keep in contact with hemorrhoids to reduce the swelling.
