Check out this strange bug bite I got in China

I apologize in advance for this post. It's just that the nurse in me is fascinated by this sort of thing. My last day in China I woke up with these two puncture marks and a swollen lateral anterior tibialis that was painful to the touch and bruising. Over the next few days the bruise continued to grow and spread. Here's a picture from today, about a week later. You can tell the bruising is fading/turning colors. I didn't drink the night before so I know I didn't fall to cause this injury. My mother in law says it is a centipede bite (or two, I guess). I believe her since she has more experience with tropical bites than me. Very bizarre and interesting.
