In brief: Treat symptoms

With a centipede bite it will likely be a very irritating reaction locally to the skin.
Would recommend cortisone cream and try to keep wound clean with antibiotic ointment or cream. If severe see your doctor.

In brief: Bite

I have also found that adding water to baking soda and apllying it can help until you can follow up with cortisone type cream.
