is it ok to shampoo my dog several times a week with the Defendex for her red mange?

You can shampoo more often than once per week but you do not want to dry out the skin. You can do more baths in the beginning but generally twice a week would be sufficient. As you begin to limit the number of mites you shouldn't need to repeat as often. There will be itching because of the skin irritation so I would use Derma-IonX and give vitamin C and quercetin to act as an antihistamine.
