It sounds that you may have caused some petechiae due to the vomiting...the strain may have caused some capillaries to rupture ...

I would advise that you also check on your Blood pressure ( normal resting seated blood pressure should be in range 100 to 135 / 60 to 85)

High blood pressure can be a factor that could increase the chance of having petechiae ....

It may likely been just a result of the strain with the vomiting ...

I hope that your nausea has settled down and that you are feeling better in that regard

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you
