Constantly dripping blood due to burst external hemorrhoid, dizziness. Should I see a doctor?

Hi I m fairly certain I have what is an external hemorrhoid which recently burst or appears raw and is bleeding fairly profusely for the past few hours. It is basically dripping constantly. I think there is also an internal one but not sure if that is bleeding. Feeling slightly dizzy. Wondering if I should go to a hospital now or wait until the morning to see a regular doctor? It is 1030pm here... Thanks!

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Fresh bleeding per-rectum can be due to hemorrhoids, anal fissures or sometimes due to a pathology in the rectum / colon. Since you have mentioned that you are bleeding profusely and are having dizziness (which may be a sigh of low blood pressure), it is advisable to seek urgent medical attention. So, I would advise you to go to the ER, rather than wait to see your family doctor.

Wish you all the best.
