Treat ear infection: When ear has an infection your balance and dizziness are affected. This can lead to nausea and vomiting. Go to doctor get it treated. Antiemetics and dizziness medication can mask the symptoms of dizziness and nausea, but will not solve the problem. Infection clears, dizziness and nausea are expected to clear too. Meclizine (OTC for dizziness), antiemetics are prescribed by doctor.
