Hello and Welcome to XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to us.

Unexplained appearance of bruise and numbness without any history of injury can happen due to platelet dysfunction or recent viral illness, drug intake or a bleeding disorder.
As your son is on remicade, it might be due to one of its side effect.
Detailed examination and blood investigations are entailed to detect the cause.
I suggest you to consult the treating doctor for evaluation.

Hope this helps you.Please do write back if you have any additional concerns.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries .

Wishing him good health...
Dr Saurabh Gupta.
