It's all speculation so it's not fair to blame the centipede. And if it's some kind of rare reaction to centipede venom that normally isn't serious, it could just as well have been a house spider causing those rare symptoms. Has anyone ever recorded such serious reactions to centipede venom before? My youngest son gets a mosquito bite and he swells up like a balloon and blisters. I wouldn't be so quick to blame the pede just because it was in the vacinity.
