Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Excessive consumption of spicy food can cause inflammation and injury to the digestive tract, starting from the throat, esophagus, to the deeper digestive tract, such as the stomach, duodenum, or intestines. This condition can trigger nausea, vomiting, accompanied by bloodstained discharge in the vomit.
How much blood is coming out of your vomit? Was it just bloodstained, or was it so much that it caused the vomit to turn red or black?
If it is only due to the influence of consuming spicy food, then this condition should not cause you to vomit a lot of blood. If it is true what you are experiencing is vomiting blood, then there may be other conditions that trigger it and you need to get immediate treatment from a doctor, for example:
Disorders of the throat, for example post nasal drip (swallowed nosebleeds) disorders of the esophagus, for example, esophageal varices rupture, esophagitis, cancer disorders of the stomach, such as gastritis, gastric ulcers, cancer disorders of the duodenum, eg duodenal ulcers disorders of the pancreas, such as pancreatitis, cancer Stomach injury that damages the gastrointestinal tract, etc. If you are experiencing this second condition, you should not take it lightly. This condition needs to be examined directly by a doctor or specialist in internal medicine so that it is given the right treatment. If not, then you are at risk of developing anemia due to excessive blood loss. Some tests, including laboratory tests, x-rays, ultrasound, endoscopy, and so on, your doctor may recommend if you suspect a more serious condition.
Now, try first to maintain your diet, namely by not consuming too much spicy food, first consume foods that are easy to digest, such as soft or soup. Get used to eat regularly, don't delay. Also avoid the habit of consuming alcohol, smoking, or taking drugs at random (including pain relievers, anti-inflammatory drugs). Do not forget, get plenty of rest and always live a healthy lifestyle.
Hope it helps ..
