In brief: I don't know

You don't share any information about yourself, so it's impossible for me to answer. Emetophobia is the fear of vomiting or becoming sick, and is a type of anxiety disorder.
There may be therapists near you who can review your concerns and offer help -- please consider consulting one.

I agree Dr Pappas. It can be treated with cognitive behavioral therapy, hypnotism and desensitization.

In brief: Fear of Vomit(ing)

Emetophobia refers to intense, irrational fear of vomit/vomiting -including seeing/smelling vomit, seeing/hearing someone else vomit, feeling nauseated, etc.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (cbt) -particularly the behavioral component involving exposure to the fear(s) (usually gradual exposure)- is considered the most effective treatment. A clinical psychologist who specializes in phobias can help.
