I can't remember right now if Tuck's pads are safe for pg or not. Either way, a sids bath would really help. I used to sit is a shallow pool of hot water. Also use a squirt bottle of warm water to clean the area after a BM.

I'm sorry you are dealing with this! Bonita gave you some helpful advice (and yes, you can use Tuck's pads.)

Here is an article which outlines some more tips/advice on dealing with hemorrhoids:
