I prefer None: Tucks have alcohol and witch hazel which i prefer not to use. Kleenex cottonelle moist wipes or fleet brand wipes or prep h wipes are better choices and no limits on their use.

Alcohol-free kind: There are many witch hazel products, but you want an alcohol-free one for hemorrhoids or it will burn. Thayer's has several kinds that you can get at health food stores -- i've even seen the pads for sale on amazon.Com. You simply apply the pads several times daily, & after wiping/cleansing after each bowel movement. The liquid can be put on a cotton ball and dabbed in the same way.
