Generally mange comes with hair loss....You will see spots of hair missing in mild cases and no redness in the skin.....It sounds like what you are describing is a skin allergy of some sort.....And for boxers to have red skin on the chin is pretty common also....If you feed from plastic bowls I would change to steel that is a common thing to cause redness....

There can be small spots that you pass off as a scratch and I have seen hair loss as small as a fingernail size, so it is not always major hair loss and scratching like crazy....You can always have him checked the next time you go in if it has not cleared up, but again to me it does not sound like mange at all.....

Since it is mostly on the chin you can use some hydrocortisone cream on it....and see if that helps clear that space he may have a little fungal on his chin from it staying most or wet from chewing or eating/drinking....
