"When someone has a burn on his skin and a reddish-white or white spot appears in the raw flesh of the burn,
the priest is to examine the spot, and if the hair in it has turned white, and it appears to be more than skin deep, it is an infectious disease that has broken out in the burn. The priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is an infectious skin disease.126
But if the priest examines it and there is no white hair in the spot and if it is not more than skin deep and has faded, then the priest is to put him in isolation for seven days.227
On the seventh day the priest is to examine him,3 and if it is spreading in the skin, the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is an infectious skin disease.
If, however, the spot is unchanged and has not spread in the skin but has faded, it is a swelling from the burn, and the priest shall pronounce him clean; it is only a scar from the burn.4
