Doctor can evaluate: Her primary care doctor can evaluate, or the E.R. Doctor can, to see where the blood is coming from and why the problem is there. People who are vomiting tend to vomit even more, if they try to eat stuff. The doctor can check for major problems, and if none are found, he or she will advise on what medications / foods / drinks to use, and most importantly, how much of each.
