Format the ticks as strings.

Plot[{3*10^20, 4*10^20}, {x, 0, 105}, PlotStyle -> Black,
  Filling -> {2 -> {1}}, FillingStyle -> LightRed, Frame -> True,
  Axes -> None, FrameLabel -> {"x", None, None, "y"},
  BaseStyle -> {FontSize -> 32, FontFamily -> "Arial"},
  FrameStyle -> Directive[Black, AbsoluteThickness[3]],
  PlotRange -> {All, {0, 6*10^20}}, PlotRangePadding -> {10, 0},
  FrameTicks -> {{None,
     Table[{n*10^20,
       ToString[n] <> "\[Times]" <>
        "\!\(\*SuperscriptBox[\(10\), \(20\)]\)"}, {n, 1,
       6}]}, {Automatic, None}}]



This part:

"\!\(\*SuperscriptBox[\(10\), \(20\)]\)"


Can be entered as 10^20 in quotes with the 20 in the exponent. You can 
use the keyboard shortcut Ctl-6 to make the exponent.
