Default too many baths?

My hog silver loves to run on her wheel. She also decides not to make a pit stop when she has to go, she just runs right through it. Yuck. So I keep needing to give her a bath because of her "poop boots" but I just gave her one two days ago. I don't want to dry her out. I am using an oatmeal shampoo which helps. But how often is too often??

I'm new but I pretty much go by simple foot bath per day along with cleaning the wheel. Outside that a bath every 7-10 days. I don't want to dry her skin out to much.

If you tilt the wheel forward a little some of the poop will go in the tray or on the ground so its not so much on her

Sophie is 4 months old now and hasn't had a full bath yet. She gets a foot and belly bath 3 days a week (with nail inspection and a maybe a couple of clips). I have a toothbrush that I use with her and she seems to like having her quills brushed, so I'll dip it in the water and her quills will get a minor brushing/rinsing.

I should probably give her a full bath with her Aveeno sometime soon, but haven't seen a need so far. That has worked out well, because it took almost 3 months for her to lighten up and be okay with the water. Before that, she was all, "I'm melting! I'm melting!"
