In brief: Treat symptoms only
Viral infections of the intestinal tract are almost always self-limiting.
It is important, however, to not become dehydrated. Maintain a high fluid intake, treat nausea and vomiting and diarrhea with agents your doctor can provide. If you are not able to keep things down by mouth you may need intravenous fluids to maintain adequate blood volume, and if you are in doubt about this, see M.D.

In brief: Symptomatic ally
You should stop eating solids and avoid milk products and drink a great deal especially liquids fortified with electrolytes to avoid dehydration.
