A painful Hemorrhoid appreared (pic included)

Hi, i'm in my mid 20s and i've had internal hemorrhoids which were slightly annoying but nothing to write home about.
A few days ago i asked my doctor for some suppositories to help with that.
The suppositories contain Bismuth subgallate (100mg), thymol biiodide (150mg), tannic acid (20mg), zinc oxide (100mg), benzocaine (100mg) and 5mg of menthol.
At the same time i started using those, i started taking amoxycillin (875mg) twice daily for my ingrown toenail.

A day or so after i started medicating with those two, an external Hemorrhoid appeared. It's causing me a fair amount of pain and discomfort.

Here is a picture of said Hemorrhoid: http://i.imgur.com/5rEBb.jpg

What got me worried, besides the pain, is the fact that i have some internal bleeding.
Could this lead to blood clot and prove dangerous? Should i run to the doctor asap, or could i wait until Sunday?

(I'm sorry if posting such a picture is against the forum rules, i couldn't find them listed anywhere)

Hi!
Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anal canal. Internal hemorrhoids are small, swollen veins in the wall of the anal canal. They can cause pain if they bulge out or are squeezed by the anal muscles. In case the blood supply to the hemorrhoid is cut it can cause severe pain. External hemorrhoids can get irritated and clot under the skin and cause a hard painful lump.Suppuration, thromboembolic phenomena, fibrosis, infection and fibrosis are few of the complications of piles if left untreated. I will advise you to drink plenty of water and take a high fiber diet. Seek medical help ASAP before any complications arise. Do keep us posted.
Good luck and regards!
