Hi Kajal,
Thanks for writing in.
If your sister is vomiting every 2-3 hours, we'd be looking at some kind of intestinal obstruction. This can be due to several causes including tuberculosis. This would need an ultrasound and a CT scan of the abdomen. I would suggest you take her to a bigger hospital where a thorough evaluation can be done. This needs to be treated as soon as possible. The vomiting and other symptoms can be addressed only once we have narrowed down the cause

Since you have not mentioned any details about your sisters problem,I can only say that you must consult a Gastroenterologist and get the required investigations done relating to liver ,stomach and intestines.
You shall be able to get the services of Gastroenterologist in a good hospital or medical college.

Thanks for writing to us.
Frequent vomiting in a 14 year old can be due to digestive problems or gastric acidity. She needs proper investigations and examination to find out the cause. The supportive treatment with anti ulcer drugs and domperidone will help her till then.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
