In brief: Is it troubling you?

Regardless if it is a bruise or an insect bite, if the lesion is troubling you (uncomfortable, painful, unusually itchy, red or swelling) or has remained a bother for an extended period of time then this warrants an evaluation by your local physician.
Bruises or insect bites tend to be rather transient and provide a nuisance temporarily--yet your situation seems to have been more persistent.
