13:19 If a white blotch or bright pink spot then develops where the infection was, it must be shown to the priest.
Vehayah bimekom hashchin set levanah o vaheret levanah adamdamet venir'ah el-hakohen.
13:20 The priest shall examine it, and if it appears to have penetrated the skin and its hair has turned white, it is the leprous curse that has erupted over the infection.
Vera'ah hakohen vehineh mar'eha shafal min-ha'or use'arah hafach lavan vetime'o hakohen nega-tsara'at hi bashchin parachah.



Commentary:

bright pink
  Like a cup of milk containing as much as 16 drops of blood (Shevuoth 6a; Yad, Tumath Tzaraath 1:4; cf. Negaim 1:2). The average cup is a revi'ith, which is 75ml. while an average 'drop' is 0.147ml. (cf. Tifereth Yisrael Mareh Cohen 1:4). The color is therefore like a mixture of milk containing up to approximately 3% blood.
