Does tucks (witch hazel) get rid of hemorrhoids or just soothe them?

In brief: Neither

I don't recommend tucks due to the alcohol and witch hazel.
However they can soothe to some extent. I recommend kleenex cottonelle wipes as a better alternative.

In brief: Soothe

It just soothe them. Once hemorrhoids present, you need a procedure to get rid.
The procedure used will depend on size of hemorrhoids.
