    Amitraz is the recommended medication for this...you need a Veterinarian for the treatment, also there is need for topical creams...DE will do nothing to help the dog...

    The technical term for red mange is Demodectic Mange...I suggest you look on the internet to see the extent of what needs to be done to help your dog...try www.pets.webmd.com

    There are different types of mange,some more severe than others. The mange your dog has is Demodectic Mange known as Red Mange,Demodicosis is the name of the disease,yes it can be passed from mother to pups,but is not contagious to other animals or humans. Does your dog show symptoms of red mange or are you assuming she has it since one of her pups does,there is a difference.


    here is a link explaining all of this.
