Brief Answer:
Possible but not common with Remicade.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this blood blister that your son has. I have reviewed the image and this is typical of a blood clot. Remade is a possible explanatory factor but this is rare. This might rather be linked to trauma during chewing. If this happens only once, no need to get concerned. Only seek further care if this happens repeatedly. For a one time episode, be calm and relaxed and monitor only to obtain more information that will guide towards the diagnosis.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.
