New born having loose bowel movements , rash over body, dry skin after using formula feed. How long will it take to subside?

Hi there. My daughter is 5 weeks old and experiencing allergy type symptoms to the formula we are using. I stopped breastfeeding at 3 weeks due to her constantly power chucking after every feed and frenzy feeding . I put her on s-26 infant gold formula and she was still power chucking. Her other symptoms include: bowel movements loose/watery, restless, gassy, rash all over face and upper trunk, dry skin round ears and forehead , fussiness during feeds, refusing feeds, constantly hungry. Yesterday I changed her formula to a soy one, her face rash appeared to be clearer today- aside from when she gets irritated then it looks like it flares up, she has just done a poo which seemed to be very painful for her and it was half hard green half watery yellow. She seems happier, I am just concerned she may also be reacting to the soy. How long will it take her rash etc to disappear, and how do I know if shes sensitive to soy also? (Note: Her 3 year old sister was sensitive to dairy and has a moderate allergy to peanuts) Thank you for your help.

ACTUALLY NO MILK SUIT TO ANY CHILD ECEPT BREAST FEED
BREAST FEED IS REQUIRED TILL 2 YEARS
AND AFTER THAT NO MILK
ALL MILK ARE OF ANIMALS AND ANIMAL ROTEIN ARE NON COMPETIBLE WITH HUMAN PROTEINS
SO ANY FORMULA WILL REACT
MILK AND DIARY PROTEINS REACT IN EVERY CHILD IN STRTING YEARS OF LIFE
YOU CAN ADD FRUITS JUICES CEREALS BUT DONT ADD ANY FORMULA MILK
EVEN SOYA IS HEAVY AND IT ALSO CAUSES PROBLEMS

ONLY CAMEL MILK HAS THE FORMULA LIKE THAT OF HUMAN AND YOU CAN TRY DILUTION OF THIS
