how long does red dye #40 take to get out of a child's brain

my daughter very sensitive to it
took long time for me to figure it out
told daycare
i was thinking that they thought i was nuts
(eye rolling, you know the look)
last two weeks the rash started again
then last tuesday night rash increased bigger, redder, and her behavoir-yikes!
this happens when she has it in liquid form
daycare denys

only food in her system since is what i give her= no food dyes
rash redness gone, still can see but much better, speech is back a bit, but she is still head banging

she head banged until the i figured the dye connection, took all dyes out and she stopped, until last week, so we KNOW she was given red #40

how long will it stay in her system???
anything that i can do to help rid her brain of the poison

(if you believe the FDA and think red #40 has no ill effect for ALL children, please do not respond beacuse i know
