Try your best not to think about it, try to relax and if your in public you can go into the restroom and relax. If the place has a restroom.

That helps a little, but sometimes being near a toilet can scare me more, it reminds me of throwing up if i'm already thinking about it.

Wikipedia says:

"Emetophobia is a phobia that causes overwhelming, intense anxiety pertaining to vomiting. This specific phobia can also include subcategories of what causes the anxiety, including a fear of vomiting in public, a fear of seeing vomit, a fear of watching the action of vomiting or fear of being nauseated. It is common for emetophobics to be underweight or malnourished due to strict diets and restrictions they make for themselves. The thought of someone possibly vomiting can cause the phobic person to engage in extreme behaviors to escape the perceived threat of that particular situation, in which the phobic person will go to great lengths to avoid even potential situations that could even be perceived as "threatening"."

 

I have no idea how to deal with it!

If yours is severe, I don't know what mine is. I would offer advice to you, but it's really a problem for me, too. I'd love to hear some advice!!
